**Reiny**, Monday, September 5, 2011 at 7:43amAre we to assume that there is a 20% gain for every odd-numbered month and for the even-numbered months the investment stays constant?

Since the "first" month would be odd-numbered, the amount after the first month would simply be

2000(1.2) = 2400

the "formula" would simply be

amount = 2000(1 + .2)^1
