  1. 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

    P1-P2 = 1358.41 - 1258 = $100.41
