    use the formula I = Prn P = principal ( amount invested) $651.37 r = interest rate as a decimal 3.9% = 0.039 n = number of time periods 15 just substitute andevaluate for an answer.

    I think you may need to include the 5 cents in the answer $381.05 this is the interest the account balance will be the Principal + Interest

    so in this question you need to find the interest 1007.78 - 616 = 391.78 when you know the interest I you need to formula I = Prn or 391.78 = 616 * 0.053* n you need to solve for n

    ummm the question becomes \[\frac{391.78}{(616 \times 0.053)} = \]
