Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Irawrd is right, but can it can be done algebraically. Percent is out of 100 so 4.5%= .045 You could multiply 850000 x .045 = 38250+850000= 888250 x .045 =39971.25 + 888250 = 928221.25 and on and on to six times. That's the hard way. The easy way is to just put it in the graphing calculator.
