This UDA can be used to perform a Math Power calculations as desired.  You could also use the inline function in workflow as well.

Long Description

The process described in this post, is about getting the workflow history from an original item and specific workflow instance, and logging it to another workflow instance on the destination item.  Not the ideal solution, but it's better than nothing right?

 

What I've done though, is add the Workflow History logging into a User Defined Action.  That way, it is reusable in any workflow.  It also means you can reuse it multiple time in one workflow, to copy workflow history from multiple workflow instances.

I do want to point out that workflow history is stored based on a specific workflow instance.  This process is going to take that workflow and now log it to a different workflow instance.  But that is the result of this process.  There's no way to copy a workflow instance completely over to another list and another list item.  Hopefully, this is a nice workaround for you.
