    Hello Jan, the pow() function still exists and works as intended. Keep in mind that you should use the proper format when using this:

    pow (base, exponent)

    To place the comma, just type it in. Afterwards, press the TAB key on your keyboard. It will turn into a square with a brown background. You need to click it afterwards so the background turns to black as shown below.

    Here's the form: 70905715838969
