What is the difference between "*" and "**" operators?

In the following codes-

1. var= 2**2*3

2. var= 2*2*3

Both the codes give the same result. How are the two operators different?

The "**" operator is used for 'power of" and "*" is used for multiplication.

Try-

var=2**3*2

and, var= 2*3*2 to see the difference. In your code 2**2 and 2*2 yields the same value.
