    For a graph G, its rth power G^r has the same vertex set as G, and has an edge between any two vertices within distance r of each other in G. We give a lower bound for the number of edges in the rth power of G in terms of the order of G and the minimal degree of G. As a corollary we determine how small the ratio e(G^r)/e(G) can be for regular graphs of diameter at least r.
