If you deposit $10,000 in a bank account that pays 10 percent interest annually, how much money will be in your account after 5 year?

    10,000 x .10 = 1000 interest a year

    5 years x 1000= $5000

    10,000 + 5000 = $15,000

    (If you didn't spend any of the 10,000 of course lol.

    Christina's answer doesn't take into account that you'll be paid interest on the interest.

    After the first year, you'll have $11,000 in your account -- $10,000 + 1,000.

    The second year:
    11,000 x .1 = 1,100
    11,000 + 1,100 = 12,100

    The third year:
    12,100 x .1 = 1,210
    12,100 + 1,210 = 13,310

    Fourth year:
    13,310 x .1 = 1,331
    13,310 + 1,331 = 14,641

    14,641 x .1 = 1,644.1
    14,641 + 1,644.1 = $16,285.10

    It looks like at the end of 5 years, you'll have $16,285.10 in your account. Check my figures.
