Find the principle, given r=3% and t=3/4 years, a=2556.25

• Math -

What does a represent?

• Math -

PRINCIPAL , not principle (they sound the same but are very different)

Now you do not say but I suppose you are doing continuous compounding for 0.75 years at 3% ????

If so

A = P e^(rt)
here A = 2556.25
r = 0.03
t = 0.75

2556.25 = P e^(.0225)
2556.25 = P * 1.02276
