What rate of interstis required so that $1000 will yield $1900 after 5 years if the interset rate is compounded monthly. And I got 12.9%
Now How long will it take a sum of money to triple if it is invested at 10% compounded daily

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1there is a formula for this. do you know it / did you use it for the first question?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes it is A=P(1+r/n)^nt

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok so: r = .10 n = 365 A = 3*P \[3*P = P*(1+\frac{.1}{365})^{.1*t}\]solve for t.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so what do we do know

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1well you can start by dividing by P to get rid of it. then you will need to solve for t, which will involve using logarithms.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so 3=p(1+10/365)^365/t

heisenberg

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no. after dividing by P:\[3= (1+\frac{.1}{365})^{.1*t}\]

heisenberg

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1then you must use logarithms. I use ln which is log_e, the natural log. \[\ln(3)= .1*t*\ln(1+\frac{.1}{365})\] then solve for t.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok can you help me do that it really hard for me

heisenberg

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so remember, what you do to one side of the equation, you must do to the others. since we want t by itself, we can divide by the other terms to isolate it, like so: \[\frac{\ln(3)}{\ln(1+\frac{.1}{365})} = .1*t\] then divide by .1 and you will have t by itself.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1take the log(3), then divide by the other log. then divide by .1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now i divide by what

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1how did you get 1.18968? you must do the inside of the parentheses first. here is it in an online calculator: http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=log%281%2B.1+%2F+365%29&a=*FunClash.log_*Log10.Log

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok But isnt it .10 instead of .1

toxicsugar22

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0because it wat to know How long will it take a sum of money to triple if it is invested at 10% compounded daily

heisenberg

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1those are the same number! .1 = .10 = .100 = .10000000

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so what is the answere

heisenberg

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1can you not calculate it? it would be better then me just giving it to you.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ut i got a weird answer and im not sure i got it right

heisenberg

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1that doesn't seem right though, heh. does it?

heisenberg

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1because i messed up! it is n*t, not r*t. so you should not divide by .1, but by 365

toxicsugar22

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so now can u help again

heisenberg

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you should try and do these yourself on a calculator. you can type it in on this site if you want even. http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=log%283%29+%2F+log%281%2B.1+%2F+365%29+%2F+365&a=*FunClash.log_*Log10.Log
