If I have 1.05 and it's to the power of can I just move the decimal to the right to get the same answer as if I went 1.05 * 1.05 * 1.05 (and then just keep taking my answer and multiplying it by 1.05 till I have done so 120 times.
Will the answers be the same, theory? I hope that makes sense.
I believe I was confusing another example where the base number was 10 and then tried to apply it to the 1.05 to the power of 120. If what you are saying is true then moving the decimal to the right would only apply when using a base of 10. Is my assumption correct?
