how long will it take an investment of $5000 to grow to $8000 if it is invested at 7.8% per year compounded weekly?

  1. Reiny

    assuming 52 weeks per year
    i = .078/52 = .0015

    5000(1.0015)^n= 8000
    1.0015^n = 1.6
    log (1.0015^n) = log 1.6
    nlog1.0015 = log 1.6
    n = log1.6/log1.0015 = 316.57 monts
    = 6.03 years

    it would take 6 years
