The trick is to use a calculator here. Not much any other way.
But if you want an approximation, you can use the binomial expansion:
(1+x)ⁿ = 1 + nC1 * x + nC2*x² + ...
If x is small (as here), use just the first few terms. Take the first three.
You will get the approximate answer of 2.104.
Try four terms... what do you get?
