  2. P1 = Po + Po*r*t = 4000 + 4000*0.0725*2 = $4580 After 2 yrs.

    P = Po + Po*r*t = 4580 + 4580*0.076*5 = Amt. after 7 yrs.

    After 2 years, the account becomes a new account with an initial investment of $4580 for 5 years.

  5. Interest before the rate was changed=4000x7.25x2/100
    =$580
    Interest after the rate was changed=4000x7.6x5/100
    =$1520
    Total Interest=$1520+$580
    =$2100
    Total money Mrs. Jasmine has after 7 years=$4000+$1520
    =$6100
