if interest is simple,

7500(1+.0125x) = 9944

x = 26 years

If compound annual interest,

7500(1+.0125)^x = 9944

x = 22.7

The graph for simple interest is just a straight line.

The graph for compound interest is a curve which gets steeper and steeper. Figure the balance after each year and plot the points, then draw the line segments.
