Let's start by thinking about growth (or appreciation). Growing something by 100% is the same as \[2^{1}\] Then if we grow by 200% we have \[2^{2}\] We can therefore generalize this to \[2^{x}\] Which means, double this x times but what if we refactor this as \[(1 + 100\%)^{x}\] We can of course change the 100% to any value we want. I hope this helps. To learn more on this, read http://betterexplained.com/articles/anintuitiveguidetoexponentialfunctionse/.
