Hey guys I'm trying to learn to use mathematica and can't get even the most simple stuff to run.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Today I was trying to use it to solve some very simple problems for my Finance Math class but all I got were errors.

These are some of the problems I was trying:

a) (1.036)^n = 2.154

b) 5225(1.0255)^-n = 3750

c) [525(1.048)^n -1] / (1.048)^1/4 -1 = 3125

It's not hard stuff just some super basic review of exponents questions we had on the first day. What I really want is to start learning mathematica and this is a start.

Thanks for the help.
