I don't have the calculator to do the exponents, but I can help you out to that point.

The equation I looked up said A = P(1 + r/n) ^nt

A is for ending amount so 19700 P is beginning amount which is unknown r is interest rate (as decimal) so .1 n is number of compounds a year, so 2 t is total number of years \[19700=P(1+\frac{ .1 }{ 2 })^{2(5)}\]
