Hi, I have a friend that is new to the U.S country and he is confused on a math formula he asked this: What does the symbol before N mean Lifetime risk of hemorrhage = 1  (risk of no hemorrhage) ^ N
my response in my opinion I think the symbol before N means to the power of. I ask here to make sure if my thought is correct.
I want to give him the correct response. So I ask here to make sure. I would think the symbol means to the power of N.
Would I be correct?

By the sound of things, you want to look at some precalculus.

It could denote the exterior product, sometimes called a wedge product, of two vectors, resulting in a bisector; however, this would seem too abstract for a college placement exam.
