Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so here n = 3yrs = 36 months r = 18% per annum but this will get compounded monthly so it cannot be 18%

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0can i leave it in the annual form and just do A=100,000x(19)^3 ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so your formula will change right the formula that i had given u is the general formula now when it is compounded monthly in that case the formula would be \[A = P\times{(1+{{r}\over{12}})^{12n}}\]
