    Ok. You would use the equation P=500000(1+0.04)^2

    Where p is the final value, and 5000000 is the principal value.

    Just punch the equation to your calculator.

    The equation is right, so you would pick the closest answer to whatever your calculator says.

    Make sure that you input the values correctly. If that's the value you got, then you are left to pick the last option.

    Note that all of your answers end with 3 zeroes. That is theoretically impossible.

    No number would be so convenient as to be equipepd with three zeros. Therefore in these questions often colleges want to see that you have a problem solving skilll at y our reach.

    Therefore often times you are left to pick the closest number possible. I had to do those questions in standardizes tests too. They want to see that you can improvise.
