Compounded semiannually. P dollars is invested at annual

interest rate r for 1 year. If the interest is compounded

semiannually, then the polynomial P(1+r/2)^2

represents the

value of the investment after 1 year. Rewrite this expression

without parentheses. Evaluate the polynomial if

P = $200 and r = 10%.
