    The formula for compounded interest is \[A=P(1+\frac{r}{n})^{nt}\] Where n is the number of times per year it is compounded So the equation you will need to use is \[A=P(1+\frac{r}{365})^{365t}\]

    \[2265.96=1227.43(1+\frac{r}{365})^{365*13}\] \[\frac{2265.96}{1227.43}=(1+\frac{r}{365})^{365*13}\] \[\log(1.8461)=\log((1+\frac{r}{365})^{365*13})\] \[\log(1.8461)=365*13*\log((1+\frac{r}{365}))\] \[\frac{\log(1.8461)}{365*13}=1.000129=\log(1+\frac{r}{365})\] \[10^{1.000129}=1+\frac{r}{365}\] \[10^{1.000129}-1=0.000129=\frac{r}{365}\] \[r=0000129*365=0.0471\]
