so to calculate the algorithm, you need to change the power variable to the exponent variable (since thatâ€™s what youâ€™re basing it from). and them multiply the total with the number. as well as assigning it to the total variable (multiply and assign).

to multiply variables in a code, you use this ( * ) key

Dear All Big Brains of the Discourse,
I appreciate the help, but it took me some time to admit that I still canâ€™t comprehend what you mean at allâ€¦ YET. Could you explain in simpler terms?
Sincerely,

There you should multiply number with himself for exponent times and you will get a number that it is in total.
For example, if number=2 and exponent=3, then total=222=8. Do you understand now?
