any idea how to formulate a equation for that?
no :/ cantremember
I believe the formula is \[A = Pe ^{rt}\]

Conpound interest can be calculated using the formula
1 Attachment
P = principal amount (the initial amount you borrow or deposit) r = annual rate of interest (as a decimal) t = number of years the amount is deposited or borrowed for. A = amount of money accumulated after n years, including interest. n = number of times the interest is compounded per year
remember your interest compounds annually(every year)
@Kuoministers That is indeed the formula for compound interest where you have a finite number of compounding periods. However, in this problem, the interest is compounded continuously. So the formula I posted is the one to use and I am afraid you are confusing the asker. Why don't you google "interest formula compounded continuously"?
@Mertsj is right .
ah yes my bad @mertsj :)
but it still would work if you used the formula that i had?
So Rugtugba, now that we have cleared the chatter, are you ready to continue?
@Kuoministers What would you use for n?
1 since its compounded yearly
Plug into the formula. The initial amount A is Ok. Let me deal with the cat first.
@Kuoministers So compounded continuously means annually? I thought compounded annually meant compounded annually. Silly me!!
Good luck, Rugtugba. We have way too many cooks in this kitchen.
@Kuoministers the continuous forumla is the limiting form of the finite form you have posted. Your calculus will have to be up to speed to prove it. You can explore it on your own by calculating the finite formula multiple times, each with an increasing value of n.
its alright guys i found it its 1349.60 thanks anyways
