Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.22835.48= 2310.72(1+r/2)^10 1.2271 = (1+r/2)^10 1.02067 = 1+ r/2 .02067 = r/2 r = 0.04135 => 4.1%

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Roberta deposited $4,790.23 into a savings account with an interest rate of 3.8% compounded twice a year. About how long will it take for the account to be worth $9,000? A = P(1+r/n)^(nt) 9000 = 4790.23(1+0.038/2)^(2t) solve for t

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0A=P(1+r/n)^(n*t) 9000=4790.23(1+0.038/2)^(2*t) 9000=4790.23(1+0.019)^(2*t) 9000=4790.23(1.019)^(2*t) 9000/4790.23 = (1.019)^(2*t) (1.019)^(2*t) = 9000/4790.23 (1.019)^(2*t) = 1.87882 log( (1.019)^(2*t) ) = log( 1.87882 ) 2t*log( 1.019 ) = log( 1.87882 ) 2t = log( 1.87882 )/log( 1.019 ) 2t = 33.506118 t = 33.506118/2 t = 16.753059 t = 16.75 t = 16+0.75 years t = 16 years + 0.75 years t = 16 years + 0.75*12 months t = 16 years + 9 months t = 16 years, 9 months

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The key to solving for t, which is in the exponent, is to use logs to isolate it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0A=P(1+r/n)^(n*t) A=7775(1+0.045/n)^(n*14) Now plug in n = 365. If you get 14,398.87 for A, or close enough to it, then the answer is "daily". If not, then move onto n = 12, n = 4, and n = 1 until you find your answer.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1for 365 i got 12960.26204

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you should have gotten A = 14597.86 when n = 365

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1oh i get it 365=daily 12=monthly 1yearly quartly=4 right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yep n = 365 means you compound 365 days a year (assuming not a leap year)

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ie you compound 365 times a year

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0n = 4 means you compound 4 times a year, etc etc
