interest.
I am really having trouble with this and cant guess a thing.

Compounded Int.
P1 = Po(1+r)^n
r = 4.8%/100 = 0.048 = Annual % rate expressed as a decimal.
n = 1Comp./yr. * 10Yrs. = 10 Compounding
periods.
P1 = 850(1.048)^10 = $1358.41
Simple Int.
P2 = Po + Po*r*t = 850 + 850*0.048*10 =
$1258.00
P1P2 = 1358.41  1258 = $100.41
