[thelist] JavaScript Mathematical Calculation

Hi gang,

I need to convert this calculation from VBScript to JavaScript:

qrate = -1 + (v5year*v5year) ^ (1/12)

The thing that's tripping me up is the VBScript exponention operator, while
in JS is actually a bitwise operator. Can someone please help me translate
this line? Tried using Math.pow() but it doesn't give me the same result.

Thanks in advance,
