We deposit $19000 into an account earning 3% interest compounded semiannually. How many years will it take for the account to grow to $47500 ? Round to 2 decimal places.

  • Business Calc -

    19000(1+.03/2)^(2n) = 47500
    now just solve for n.

  • Business Calc -

    perhaps by taking a log to some base of both sides :)
