Use the Math.pow() function.

To calculate x^y say Math.pow(x, y). For example:

Math.pow(2, 4)  // returns 16
Math.pow(13, 3) // returns 2197

(Since you've mentioned that you're working on homework I'll give you a chance to figure out for yourself how to apply Math.pow() to your particular calculation rather than just giving you the final answer immediately.)
