Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I assume the x is an exponent. First, find f(4). Then find f(2). Then subtract their values and divide by 2.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1That formula should actually be: Total = Principal * (1 + rate) ^ years and I guess we assume the principal is $500 as mathstudent55 said we must find f(4) which is 500*(1.05)^4 = 607.75 Then find f(2) which is 500*(1.05)^2 = 551.25 607.75 551.25 = 56.50 for 2 years or 28.25 per year which looks like it's the second answer
