    How did you make a guess for your sister?
    Did she work it out, in which case there should be details of the work.

    You won't be helping her if you gave her the right answer without telling her why or how.

    Can she post her answer?

    Every month the principal is increased by (.11/12)principal
    or
    principal = original principal [1 +(.11/12)]^48 because 4 years is 48 months
    so
    principal after 48 months = 50,000[1.091666667]^48
    =77479.90
    and
    77479.90-50000 = 27479.90
