### Description

This will return the value of a number multiplied by itself "n"
number of times. For example, `power(5,3)` will multiply 5
by itself 3 times and return 125, which is the same as saying
5*5*5=125. Please note that the "x" value (the number to change)
*cannot* be a negative value.

This will add the value of held in the variable "dmg" to the
power of 3 to the score variable.
