The amount of money in an account with continuously compounded interest is given by the formula A=Pe^rt , where P is the principal, r is the annual interest rate, and t is the time in years. Calculate to the nearest hundredth of a year how long it takes for an amount of money to double if interest is compounded continuously at 3.8%. Round to the nearest tenth.

so you are solving

2 = 1(e^(.038t))

ln2 = ln(e^(.038t))

ln2 = .038t(lne) but lne = 1

.038t = ln2

t = ln2/.038 = 18.24 yrs
