if a principal, P, is invested at r% interest compounded annually then its future value, S, after n years is given by \(\large S=P(1+ \frac{r}{100})^n \) Use this formula to show that if an interest rate of r% is compounded k times a year, then after t years \(\large S=P(1+ \frac{r}{100k})^kt \)

    In the formula\[S=P\left(1+\frac{r}{100k}\right)^{kt},\]"compounded anually" translates to \(k=1\), and if you let \(n=t\), then you are left with\[S=P\left(1+\frac{r}{100}\right)^n.\]

    That's a hint, by the way.
