I posted this question earlier incorrectly: I could still use some help figuring it out.

A student deposits $6,000 in a savings account with 6% continuously compounded interest. How many years must he wait until the balance has doubled?

12000 = 6000(e^(.06t) )

2 = e^(.06t)

take ln of both sides

ln2 = ln(e^(.06t))

ln2 = .06t (lne) , but lne = 1

.06t=ln2

t = ln2/.06

t = appr 11.55 years
