**Steve**, Tuesday, September 27, 2011 at 5:45amYou certainly are missing a step. Let the growth rate r=1.037

Year 1: p1 = 30000

year 2: p2 = p1 * 1.037 = 30000 * 1.037 = 3110

year 3: p3 = p2 * 1.037 = 31110 * 1.037 = 32261

Nite that p2 = p1*r

p3 = p2*r = p1 * r^2

see a pattern here? No, go back to your text.

pn = p1 * r^(n-1)

Now you should be able to get p6
