A = P(1+r/n)^nt
P=3800
r=5.4
t=8

what is n?

n is the number of times that interest is compounded per year.  So in your case this is 12 because the question states that interest is compounded monthly.

Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

It looks like different the way it solve above.

A = P(1+r/n)^nt
P=3800
r=5.4
t=8
n=12

A=3800(1+5.4/12)12*8

t is not 8 - that would be 8 years.  For 8 months it is 8/12 or 0.666667
r is not 5.4 - that would be 540%.  For 5.4% it is 0.054

So you get:
A=3800(1+0.054/12)^(12*0.666667)
A=3800(1.0045)^(8)
A=3800(1.036572)
A=3938.83
