Write an ewuatiin that expressed the amount A, of the investment as a function of time, t, in years

  • advanced functions -

    A = P(1.08)^t
    where P is the initial investment or "principle"

    If t is not an integer number of years, the next lower integer must be used, since interest is only compunded at the end of a year in this example. Some banks and bond transfer agents will credit partial-year interest up to the time of withdrawal, however.
