1. Let' see if your answer works for a country with an initial GDP of $50,000

50,000 * 1.05 = 52,500

52,500 * 1.05 = 55,125

55,125 * 1.05 = 57,881.25

Year 4: 60,775.31

Year 5: 63814,08

Will it reach 100,000 in ten years?

The next two are wrong.

38. Go back and check your book and then post your answer.
