Just sub in F(t)=3(25 000)

Into the equation, and solve for t. It's rather a nice one, this question.

the initial amount is t= 0 which gives 25000 then 75000 = 25000(1.0525)^t 3 = (1.0525)^t now use guess and check for t... easiest method

Simply F(T)

pick up a calculator... enter 1.0525 to the power of 20.... is this close to 3... keep changing the power

or just Log(3)/Log(1.0525) and gives me the exact answer. I have the answer just couldnt remember how to do the problem lol
