Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes, it's :D So... Interest 5% annual is 1.25% each 3 months. So, you'll have interest calculated 4 times a year during 7 years. So: (1+0.0125)^28=1,4159923036192264747591121310131 You'll got 1,4159923036192264747591121310131 times the money you deposited. So you have to deposit 45000/1,4159923036192264747591121310131 31.779,84 (rounded up the last penny).
