I was doing the assignment 6 in Cattle Drive, and stuck with the "New class" that i have to found in standard java class library. Can any one tell me the class i need please? The assignment is about the exponent, say i have 2 and powered with int i (0,1,2,3......,64),but with the i increasing the number will get larger and larger. So the problem is how to handle the number that is too big!
One of the purposes of this assignment is "to become more familiar with the java libraries." One was to do this is to look through the classes in the java api documentation for a particular class which will fulfill the requirements for this assignment. It seems that if someone were to tell you which particular class to use, they would be depriving someone (you) of an education.

Hi Charles, hope that you've found the class. Narrow down the search by looking at the packages. For example, if you're working on RMI, look at the java.rmi.* packages for the related classes. Another example, applet-related classes will be in java.applet package. So now, you're looking for number-related class, which package would you think most likely in?
A warm welcome to Cattle Drive.
