I'm trying to compute **1.45E-03e^0.0207x = y** into my calculator, where **x = 10**, but I keep on getting an ERROR message.

I cumputed it as so: 1.45E-03e^(0.0207(10)).

However, when I compute the same equation the same way into a calculator provided by the Google search bar, it shoots out **0.25156093592 **as an answer.

Why is that so?

1.45E-3 x e^(0.0207) x 10 =

0.00145 x 1.02091573097.... x 10 =

**= 0.0148032780991 - This is the correct answer.**

I would also recommend https://www.symbolab.com/solver/algebra-calculator as a better calculator than whichever one you used.

I will do it by** copying and pasting **it into the web2calc (the one on this site)

1.45E-03e^0.0207x where x=10

I am not actually sure of the convention as to the meaning. That is why I think brackets shoulr be used (conventions can be confusing.)

So I have done it with both interpretations.

1.45E-03e^0.0207*10 = 0.0148032780991003017

1.45E-03e^(0.0207*10) = 0.001783474729082091415
