When typing this term into your calculator you have to use brackets:

15000 * e^(0.05 * 3) will yield approximately 17427.5

e is a constant number (like pi). Maybe your calculator needs the input

15000 * exp(0.05 * 3)

If you want to use logarithms you may transform the given equation into:

\(\displaystyle \ln(P)=\ln(15000) + 0.05 \cdot 3\)
