    n is to the power of, you will need a scientific calculator for this. My calculator has an x to the power y button for it. Where the x is normal size and the y is a small one next to it.

    Alternatively you can drop it in excel to work it out at home in which case the formula is =12345*(1+0.1)^5, but that probably won't help you on an exam!

    That's weird, I thought you weren't allowed scientific calculators in exams anyway?

    You're not allowed calculators that can store text. Most scientific calculators which you'd use for GCSE/A level won't.
