Power, exponent or Airtable's version of Excel's ^ symbol


I am trying to emulate MS Excel’s “^” function in Airtable. I have tried the POWER function and it doesn’t seem to work. Optimally, I am calculating Customer Lifetime Value. Any clues about how to effectively do this?


Could you give an example of what you’re trying to achieve, and the results you’re getting with POWER that aren’t what you expect?
