could you try to work on a challenge for a day or two before asking for help? Chances are you will figure it out on your own if you try enough and think about it.

I hope this doesn't sound mean, but trying it for a day or two really works

Its not a real programing language. Its pseudo-code.
If you don't know what pseudo-code is, google it.

What do you think the_power_of() would do?

I've solved this challenged already.. My friend had run the code in Linux and he got a whole numbers... With those numbers you must count every 33rd digits number and stick them together... Don't forget to add the first number... So you start count every 33rd after the first number..

i just can't imagine how come my favorite Windows Calculator can't calculate this math ops?
maybe the display screen ain't big enough to show all the digits so it will add 'e+bla bla bla' in the end of the numbers.
My friend advised me to use excel, but it says #NUM,
Then i use VB to make my own calculator and use word wrap so it will show all the numbers i need...

Excel can only hold numbers that are up to 308 decimal digits, the answer is 528 digits. You need a high/arbitrary precision calculator.
