Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Use the Formula, A = P(1 + i/n)^(nt) A is the eventual amount, P is the Principal amount, i is the interest expressed as a decimal, n is the number of times the interest is compounded per time period and t is the number of time periods. 7000 = 3116.92(1 + 0.039/4)^4t 7000= 3116.92(1.00975)^4t 7000/3116.92 = 1.00975^4t 2.24581= 1.00975^4t log on both side 4tLog 1.00975 = Log 2.24581 4t ≈ 83.385
