Whenever I type this problem: 5000(1+1.15)^68, I get this answer: 2.0173687011×10^26. PLEASE SEE ADDITIONAL INFO BELOW

Whenever I type this problem: 5000(1+1.15)^68, I get this answer: 2.0173687011×10^26. According to my online homework (MyMathLab) that is incorrect. It should look like this: 35805.0308354 when I solve for 12000(1+0.0125)^88. I've tried a variety of physical and online calculators but I keep getting the "wrong" answer form. How do I do this? My exam is tomorrow and my teacher says that the answer to my question is on MyMathLab, but I can't find it there either. Freaking out here! Please help!

Whoa I see what's wrong! Instead of 0.046/4 I was inputting 4.6/4. 
That was dumb...
Thanks for your help. Would not have seen that otherwise.
