Inflation is running 2% per year when you deposit \$1000 in an account earning interest of 13% per year compounded annually. In constant dollars, how much money will you have two years from now? (Hint: First calculate the value of your account in two years' time, and then find its present value based on the inflation rate. Round your answer to the nearest cent.)

The instructions in your questions tell you how to do it.
Give it a try.

first part?1276.9

• math -

• math -

first part:
1000(1.13)^2 = 1276.90

You are right.

Second part:
1276.90(.98)^2 = 1226.33

One step calculation:
1000(.98)^2(1.13)^2 = 12236.33

How did you get 1225.82 ?

• math -

I multipied first part times .02 and subtracted that twice

wheres the .98 from?

Just like when money increases by 1+i,
when the money decreases you would take 1-i
in this case i = .02
so value(1-.02)^2

when the rate was 13% did you not take 1 + .13 ?

suppose we do it step by step

that loses 2% so amount left = .98(1000) = 980
that gains 13%, so 980(1.13) = 1107.40

that loses 2% , so amount left = 1107.4(.98) = 1085.25
which gains 13% , 1085.25(1.13) = 1226.33

• math -

you said you multiplied your answer by 2% and then subtracted it twice ...

let's try that

2% of 1276.90 = 25.54
leaving 1251.36

2% of 1251.36 = 25.03
subtracting that leaves 1226.33

Well, well, what do you say now?

i put that answe ina and it was wrong
