Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well, for compounding interest, we have the formula: \[ I = Pr^t \]Where \(I\) is the interest made, \(P\) is the principle (initial amount of money), \(r\) is the interest rate, and \(t\) is the number of times it's compounding. Thought this problem will require a bit more thinking.
