This tool performs modular exponentiation calculations to help you find the remainder of a number raised to a power divided by a modulus.

## Modular Exponentiation Calculator

This calculator enables you to compute the result of a base *a* raised to an exponent *b* in the context of modulo *n*, represented as *a ^{b} % n*.

### How to Use:

- Enter the value for the base
*a*in the “Base” field. - Enter the value for the exponent
*b*in the “Exponent” field. - Enter the value for the modulus
*n*in the “Modulus” field. - Click the “Calculate” button to display the result in the “Result” field.

### How it Calculates:

The calculator uses an efficient method known as **exponentiation by squaring** to compute large powers modulo a number. This method greatly reduces the number of operations needed, allowing for the quick computation of large values.

### Limitations:

This calculator strictly performs integer arithmetic and does not handle negative numbers or non-integer values. The input fields require valid numerical input for an accurate computation. The modulus *n* must be greater than one for meaningful results. The current implementation is also limited by the precision of JavaScript’s number handling capabilities.
