It's a formula he has been working on already, Spock only gave him the final hints he would have found out anyways in the future. He surely would remember it.
Old Spock with surely could, but Scotty would probably have to refer to countless old notes and files in order to reconstruct it - all of which I'm sure were confiscated.
I'm assuming there's a little more to it than left, right, left, right, B, A, START.
