Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0this formula is for interest credited and compounded on annual basis on money invested on day 1 \(A(t)=P(1+r)^t\) is a straight substitution of A(t) = $14,400 P = $1,200 r = 0.04 t = what you want to find you will need to take logs.... Thomas will need to live for quite some time.
