Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4It should be 5000 * (1.03)^2. Assuming compounding of the interest rate.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1oh so its 5000(1.03)^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4At the end of first year, you will have: 5000 + 5000 * 0.03 = 5000 * (1.03). At the end of second year, you will have: 5000 * (1.03) + 5000 * (1.03) * (0.03) Because you earn interest in the second year on the interest amount of the first year. So, that is same as: 5000 * (1.03)^2. In general, for compounded interest, for n years at rate r and principal p, you get: p * (1+r)^n

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4Use a calculator to find: 5000 * (1.03) * (1.03). That should give you: 5,304.50

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4Sometimes, these kind of problems can be formulated such that the interest rate "r" is compounded semiannually or something else. In that case, the "formula" will be similar, but in that case, in p*(1+r)^n, r represents the rate of interest for that period (semiannually for example) and n represents the total "compounding" periods.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well we all stupidly used simple interest formula..silly me

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so what is the p r and n represent in the equation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4For example, in this exact same problem, if compounding happened semiannually, then you will have the following at the end of two years: 5000 * (1+0.015)^4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Oh sorry. My mistake. I gave you the sum formula for geometric progression. The correct formula in this case is: \[a _{n} = ar ^{n1}\], but in this case, you would take it as \[a _{n} = ar ^{n}\]
