Hi All,
I am getting this error when this query is executed:
The data types numeric and int are incompatible in the '^' operator.

query is:
select 13.2846176*(10/5)^4 -24.27436623*(20/5)^3 + 14.27967309*(30/5)^2 + -2.455442334*(40/5) + 0.114953113

Please help.

'^' Denotes XOR operator in T-sql, you have to use Power() function


select power(13.2846176*(10/5),4 )- power(24.27436623*(20/5),3) + power(14.27967309*(30/5),2) + -2.455442334*(40/5) + 0.114953113
