An antique dresser was purchased for $7500 in 2005. The dresser increases in value by 9% per year. Find the value of the dresser in 2025.

So i thought it would be :

A = 7500(1+0.09)^(20)

A = 42033...

However I have been told it could be:

Value = 7500 + 7500*0.09*20 = $21,000

Which is the correct method?
