    Re: POW function

    Write a function that raises a number to a power without using any built in pow function, and without using loops. (Hint: which topic have we learned recently gave you the behavior of a loop, but isn’t a loop?)
    Use recursion.

    Why not use std::max() instead of larger()? See http://www.cplusplus.com/reference/algorithm/max/

    You are throwing an exception in SquareRoot() - but you are also catching the exception within the function. Try/catch should be around the call to SquareRoot() - not within the function.
    All advice is offered in good faith only. All my code is tested (unless stated explicitly otherwise) with the latest version of Microsoft Visual Studio (using the supported features of the latest standard) and is offered as examples only - not as production quality. I cannot offer advice regarding any other c/c++ compiler/IDE or incompatibilities with VS.
