I I 20 Points W W THE SAME RULES AS TO DISCLOSURE APPLY AS FOR THE PROBLEMS. NUMERICAL AN—
SWERS ARE REQUIRED. YOU MUST EXPLAIN HOW YOU GOT YOUR ANSWER AND WHY YOU
BELIEVE IT TO BE CORRECT. HAND IN THE ORIGINAL EXAM TOGETHER WITH THIS ONE. I. (20 points.) You deposit $100 at 3% per year. What is the balance at the end of one year if

8:400 1+— 400 4 4
< 52) + (n52) + +400<1+52> . State the geometric series formula and show how use it to evaluate S on a calculator. Hint: To
apply the geometric series formula you must factor something out. at?” 2 mp  mg. V. (20 points.) You put $10,000 into an account which earns 10% per year compounded
annually but every year you must pay a 30% tax on the gain. How much is in the account at the
