## anonymous one year ago HELP PLEASE!! :(

1. anonymous

?=(20,000)(4.9%)(54). Formula is I = PRT I have to find the interest(I)

2. Astrophysics

$4.9 \% = 0.049$

3. Astrophysics

Think of it this way, when you have a percent it's out of 100 right? So $\frac{ 4.9 }{ 100 } = 0.049$

4. Astrophysics

Is that all you needed help with?

5. anonymous

Hehe yea and that's interest right?

6. Astrophysics

Well I don't know the question, but the interest would be all those 3 multiplied together.

7. anonymous

It's wrong :/

8. Astrophysics

$I = (20000)(0.049)(54)$

9. Astrophysics

I was explaining to you how you would use a percent in a calculation, that's not the answer itself.

10. anonymous

Got 52920 but got it wrong :(

11. Astrophysics

Well you did not provide us with the full question, so I don't really know what you were expecting.

12. Astrophysics

What is 20000? What is 54? What is 4.9%?

13. anonymous

It's fine thx.

14. Astrophysics

Ok np
