4.5 percent annual interest. Determine how much longer it will take to
accumulate at least $50 000 in the second bank account if you deposit
$1000 initially and $1000 at the end of each year.

r2=.045;
P=1000;
n=1;
count=0

for t=0:99
A=P(1+r2/n)^(nt);
if A<50000
A=P(1+r2/n)^nt;
count=t
end

disp(count)

    amount= 1000;
    k=0;
    while amount < 50000
    k=k+1;
    amount =amount*1.045 +1000;
