**FredR**, Wednesday, April 9, 2008 at 1:00amcompound interest formula is:

FV=PV(1+(r/n))^(nT)

As n approaches infinity, this formula becomes:

FV=PV*e^(rt)

for the 1st $1000 invested:

FV=1000*e^(.07*20)

for the 2nd $1000 invested:

FV=1000*e^(.07*19)

and so on for 20 years. The sum total of future values minus $20,000 deposited is the interest earned in the 20 years.
