Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[P(t) = Po(1r)^t \]\[P(t) = 8(10.022)^t \]\[P(t) = 8 (0.978)^t \]\[P(20171996) = 8(0.978)^{20171996}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0same way... you have Po = 4 million, r = (3.4)/100 and t = 2005  2000

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so I would have 4(3.4/100)^5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sorry i typed the fomula wrong instead of  it's +\[P(t)=Po(1+r)^t\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0almost you'd have \[P(t)=4(1+{3.4 \over 100})^5\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0don't forget to add 1 to the rate r
