# Python Data Structures and Algorithms - Recursion: Calculate the value of 'a' to the power 'b'

## Python Recursion: Exercise-10 with Solution

Write a Python program to calculate the value of 'a' to the power of 'b'.

Test Data:
(power(3,4) -> 81

Sample Solution:-

Python Code:

``````def power(a,b):
if b==0:
return 1
elif a==0:
return 0
elif b==1:
return a
else:
return a*power(a,b-1)

print(power(3,4))
```
```

Sample Output:

```81
```

## Python: Tips of the Day

Chunks a list into smaller lists of a specified size:

Example:

```from math import ceil

def tips_chunk(lst, size):
return list(
map(lambda x: lst[x * size:x * size + size],
list(range(0, ceil(len(lst) / size)))))

print(tips_chunk([1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6], 3))
```

Output:

```[[1, 2, 3], [4, 5, 6]]
```
