The first example shows the %COUNT measure raised to the third power:
SELECT POWER(MEASURES.[%COUNT],3) ON 0 FROM patients
 
                                     POWER
                          1,000,000,000,000
The next example uses the %LABEL function to apply a more detailed caption:
SELECT %LABEL(POWER(MEASURES.[%COUNT],3),"PAT CNT^3") ON 0 FROM patients
 
                                 PAT CNT^3

The following example shows a fractional power:
SELECT POWER(MEASURES.[%COUNT],0.5) ON 0 FROM patients
 
                                     POWER
                                        100
