how to count how long of $5000 at 7% interest compounded for the investment to increase to 10000?
it will be awesome if you can put the way

  • math - ,

    Use the maximum compounding frequency which is daily. This will minimize the time required to reach $10,000.

    P = Po(1+r)^n.

    P = $10,000.
    Po = $5,000 = Initial deposit.
    r = (7%/360) / 100%=0.0001944.= Monthly % rate expressed as a decimal.
    n = The # of compounding periods.

    5000(1.0001944)^n = 10000
    Divide both sides by 5000:
    (1.0001944)^n = 2
    Take log of both sides:
    n*Log(1.0001944) = Log2
    n = Log2 / Log(1.0001944) = 3565 Compounding periods.

    T = 3565comp. * iyr/360Comp = 9.9 yrs.
