D. 973.44

because 900* .04= 36

36+900= 936

and

936*.04= 37.44

37.44+ 936= 973.44

beacuse 4% in decimal form is .04 and 4% is earned each year hope this helps!

You would want to set up a porportion.

4 x

------ = -------

100 900

So then your going to cross multiply.

4x900=3600 Then your going to divide by the remaining number.

3600/100=36.

so then your going to take 36 and x it by 2. Then add that number too 900.

You should get $972 if you the equation right.

Hope that helps.
