  • math -

    1. P = Po + Po*r*t
    P = 500 + 500*0.05*2 = $550.

    2. Same procedure as #1.

    3. P = Po(1+r)^n

    r = 5%/100% = 0.05 = Annual % rate expressed as a decimal.

    n = 1comp/yr * 2yrs = 2 compounding periods.

    Plug the above values into the given Eq
    and get $661.50.

    4. Same procedure as #3.
