please help! beginner need help with a simple algorythmy script! :)

Hi all, I'm studying IT one of my units is learning some basic programming including javascript..
I expect this is a rediculously simple problem for most folk around here, but I'm stuck haha..

I need to write a script to have a user input 2 numbers then calculate the power of one to the other (eg 4^5) and display the answer...

This is what I have..




function calculate(num1,num2)
{
for (ans=0; ans



^






the loop is running, it is multiplying num1*num1 but not updating each time the loop runs (eg num1*num1*num1*num1*num1)..
Obviously I'm missing something..
If anyone could help it would be greatly appreciated :)
