    use the compound interest formula \(\large A = P(1+\frac{r}{n})^{nt}\) \(P\) = 200 \(r\) = 3% = 0.03 \(n\) = 12 (months) \(t\) = 10 (years)

    no, Yolanda is depositing 200 per month, or 200*12= 2400 per year for 10 years = 24,000 that is if there was no interest. But there is 3% interest, so it will be bigger than that

    For Yolanda you use the same formula (they don't say if she deposits the $200 at the end of each month.. but let's assume she does) however, n is in months (so 10*12= 120) and the interest is per month so 0.03/12
