Perimeter = 2*l+ 2*w l=2*w-2 Perimeter = 2*(2*w-2) + 2*w =26 4w-4+2w = 26 6w = 30 w=5, l=8

Can you tell me the formula for time...when I=PRT ...how do i isolate T?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Anytime. I don't understand. So T is time... what's P, I and R?

So it's to figure out Simple Interest... I is Interest...P is Principle...R is Rate such as the % of interest charged and T is time... so I=P*R*T

INTEREST IS EQUAL TO PRINCIPLE * RATE * TIME

My problem is I need to know... For how many years must $10,000 (that's principle) be invested at an 8 1/2 % annual interest rate to yield $4,250 in simple interest?

4250=8.5*10,000*T I think this is the equation but I'm not sure

LOL I figured it out...heeheehehe
