Compounded Continuously

Pt = Po*e^rt = $60000,

r = (16.3%/365) / 100% = 0.0004466 = Daily % rate expressed as a decimal.

t = 40yrs * 365days/yr = 14600 days.

rt = 0.0004466 * 14600 = 6.52.

Po * e^6.52 = 60000,

Po = 60000 / e^6.52 = $88.42 = initial deposit.

ComPounded Daily

Pt = Po*(1+r)^n = $60000,

r = (16.3%/365) / 100% = 0.0004466 =

periods.

Po*(1.0004466)^14600 = 60000,

Po = 60000 / (1.0004466)^14600 = $88.52 = initial deposit.
