    A = 1000 + 1000(0.05)5. A = 1000 + 250 A = 1250 So A is a lower value than D. B = (1000)(2.71828)^(0.05 * 5) B = 1000 * (2.781828^.25) B = 1284.03 So B is more than A or D. The sequence now is B, D, A. C = (1000)(1.05)^5. C = 1276.28 So the sequence of values is B, C, D, A.

    Of course; by plugging in the calculations we verified it is correct!
