How can i calculate , if A=[8 7 0] and B=[2 12 1];
I tried this code:
A = [8 7 0];
B = [2 12 1];
C = exp(A)
C*B
Matlab keeps giving error: Inner matrix dimensions must agree.

You need a . before the multiplication symbol. Try
A = [8 7 0];
B = [2 12 1];
C = exp(A)
sum(C.*B)
C.*B computes element-wise multiplication of C and B, then sum them to calculate the do product.

I see no mention of dot product in the question. But if that was the original posters request, use the dot function instead of the multiplication operators * or .* to compute the dot product.

Are we seeing different versions of the question? To me it says
"How can I calculate , if A=[8 7 0] and B=[2 12 1]" before they outline what they tried and the error it returned.

C.*B
* by itself means matrix multiply
.* means multiply individual terms
