Anne Katz, owner of Katz Sport Shop, loans $8,000 to Shelley Slater to help her open an art shop. Shelley plans to repay Anne at the end of 8 years with interest compounded semiannually at 8 percent. At the end of 8 years, Anne will receive?
In our school we all must have had come across this formula: Amount = Principal (1+Rate of Interest/100) ^ Time Now, here the interest is getting compounded semi-annually, hence, the number of time periods would double and the rate of interest would be divided by two. So, it shall be put as $8,000*(1+0.04)^16 So, Shelly will have to repay Anne $14983.85 at the end of eighth year.
