public static double Math.pow(double a, double b);
Which is defined in the java.lang package.. so no imports necessary.
Raises the first arg to the second, i.e: a^b

no not that one, its something else...here let me copy the question out, maybe it should make a difference.
Create a class called Number***. This class should have an instance variable,
called num, that will hold an integer value that will be the basis for all
operations using this object. You should have a constructor that initializes
num to hold the base value.
Your class should include methods that will use various methods from the
Math class to do the following:
a. A method that will return double the value of the num value. Call this
method double().
b. A method that will return square the value of the num value. Call this
method square().
c. A method that will return the square root of the num value. Call this
method root().
d. A method that will take a parameter and return the quotient of the
parameter divided by num rounded up to the nearest integer. Call this
method divUp().
e. A method that will return the value of num to the power of a parameter.
Call this method power().
i've done all but e

whats wrong with this.. you using the same method: pow. but ur using it differently (sort of). And the question does not say anything about using a method more than once.
code: 
int a;
int square() {
return Math.pow((double)a, 2.0);
}
double power(int b) {
return Math.pow((double)a, (double)b);
}

woops i think i read ur question wrong. the methods are instance methods and affect (or work on) an instance variable..
