Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2none will give you 4 if the answer looks like \(1.04...\) then that is a yield of larger than \(4\%\) if the answer is \(1.03...\) then no

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it's quite alright. I know how to set up the problem now. but about the yeild, the number won't equal 4, but if the last digit in the number is greater than or equal to 4 than that is the answer i would choose?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yes, that needs to be a 4, and also the denominator under \(.0385\) should be a 4 also
