Assume the interest is 5% annually ,P(0)=$1000 ,and no monies are withdrawn a)how much will be in the account after 2 years ? b)when will the account reach $4000? c)if $1000 is added to the account every 12 months, how much will be in the account after 3.1/2 year ?

  1. dP/dt = .05 P
    dP/P = .05 dt
    ln P = .05 t

    P = Pi e^.05t
    if Pi = 1000 and t = 2
    P = 1000 e^(.1) = 1105.17

    4000 = 1000 e^.05t
    e^.05 t = 4
    .05 t = ln 4
    t = 27.72 years

    1000 for 1 year = 1051
    2051 for year 2 = 2156
    3156 for year 3 = 3318
    4318 * e^.025 =4427

  2. Last line in answer has an error, it should say:
    3318*e^.025=3402.27
