**MathMate**, Thursday, July 9, 2009 at 5:57pmHow did you make a guess for your sister?

Did she work it out, in which case there should be details of the work.

You won't be helping her if you gave her the right answer without telling her why or how.

Can she post her answer?

50,000x.11=5500

**Damon**, Thursday, July 9, 2009 at 6:48pmEvery month the principal is increased by (.11/12)principal

or

principal = original principal [1 +(.11/12)]^48 because 4 years is 48 months

so

principal after 48 months = 50,000[1.091666667]^48

=77479.90

and

77479.90-50000 = 27479.90
