    formulas given to me: interest compounded continuously:A=Pe^(rt) A=P(1+r/n)^(nt) what I need help with: I'm supposed to express these solutions as a form of e

    What I have:I put in the numbers for b, and got e^0.06=(1+r)^2 0=(1+0.5r)^2-e^0.06 0=(1+0.5r+e^0.03)(1+0.5r-e^0.03) 1+0.5r-e^0.03=0 r=2e^0.03-2 In other words, I used the difference of squares what everyone else got in my virtual discussion board: 0.0224e how did they get this answer and what am i doing wrong?

    I know e is a number. But I'm supposed to give this answer in terms of e, just like giving an answer in terms of pi.

    (2e^0.03-2) /e = .224

    so r=(2e^0.03-2)=.224e

    yaeh but there isn't any point in using e if you are going to approximate in the first place.
