Homework Help: Math [Interest]

Posted by Bob on Wednesday, October 20, 2010 at 8:23am.

Okay, so I've been away from school for three weeks, and we have a math test tomorrow. I only just found out, and my friend emailed me the review questions. If someone could help me out, and show me how to do this, I'd appreciate it. No, I do not want someone to do my homework for me. I'm an idiot where math is concerned and I don't understand this.

1. Julie invests $500 at 5% simple interest. How long will it take to double in value?

2. Helen won the lotto when she was 18 and invested all the money at 4.5% compounding annually. When she was 24 it was worth $145073. How much did she win in the lotto?

3. Jessica has $150000 to invest for three years. She researches three investment options. Calculate the interest each option would earn and select the best option.
a. 5% pa simple interest

b. 4.5% pa compounding monthly

c. 4.25% pa compounding annually

4. Calculate the interest earned for the month in this cash management account.
