Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Actually, this is the equation because it's compounded continuously... 6000 = 3000e^(.075t) divide both sides by the 3000 and then take the natural log to get rid of the e. ln(2000) = .075t t = ln(2000)/.075 ~ 101.3453661... 101.35 years (rounded)
