Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wait are you trying to find x? cuz i dont think that is the interest rate. the interest rate would be a percentage, right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0because the intestest rate would be like ending amount minus starting amount divided by 7 years divided by 4(because theres 4 quarters in each year) and then we get a number. and whatever percentage that is from the starting amount is the annual percentage i think?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that doesnt equal the ending amount though.. because it's been 7 years and 4 quarters each year so 7*4 is 28 right? so according to your solved annual rate, we would multiply 28 * .2782 (because thats 27.82% as a decimal) and that result PLUS 1762.14 should give you 2248.95 but it doesn't..
