Take the fractional part and use a lookup table.

And how would you suggest implementing the speed and altitude?  Where

speed = (1.08^x)-1 and altitude = 1.002^x?  Yeah, it's easy on a PC

where you've got floating point support and memory and CPU cycles to

burn.  Not fun on an 8-bit MCU that more often than not doesn't even

have a hardware multiplier.  Certainly not as simple as the single

QBASIC statement needed to handle it might imply.
