Exponentiation operator precedence

Ideally syntax proposals should include some frequency information to
motivate any change. Is there an easy search to estimate the frequency of
Math.pow? In my application codebase (financial app with only modest JS
use), there are very few uses, and there are as many uses of Math.sin as
there are of Math.pow.

Anecdotally, my eyes caught on: "-Math.pow(2,-10*a/1)" (from a charting
library) which makes me not want to have to review code where I'm worried
about the precedence of exponentiation.
