Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Does this look correct:You would make more interest by investing Showing my work: *3% is equivalent to 0.03. $3,000 * 0.03 * 2 = $180. *We must multiply by two since you are investing $3,000 in a 6MONTH certificate of deposit (half of a year). 3.5% is equivalent to 0.035. 1,000 * 0.035 = $35 *We do not have to multiply by two here since you are investing $1,000 in a 12MONTH CD. In short, 12 months is equivalent to a year so we do not have to multiply by two here. Therefore, I would make more interest by investing $3,000 in a 6month certificate of deposit (CD) at 3%.
