   number   The power to raise e to.

Calculate continually compounding interest on $500 at 10% for 5 years:

Dim dblDemo As Double
dblDemo = 500 Exp(0.1*5)

In practice most accounts pay interest yearly or monthly rather than continually.
So $500 at 10% for 5 years would be:

Dim dblDemo As Double
dblDemo = 500 * 1.1^5
