Dr. Raja Latif.Math 131 Summer 2005. Pg:2 Solution . S 15000  1.02 28 \$26115.36. Rolf349 Example 49. Daniel received a \$1000 gift that he deposited in a savings bank that compounded interest quarterly. After 5 years of accumulating interest, the account had grown to \$1485.95. What was the annual interest rate of the bank? Solution . 1485.95 10001 r 20 , so 1 r 20 1.48595. 1 r 1.48595 1/20 which is approximately 1.02, r 0.02, so the annual rate is 8%. Example 349Rolf51.Jerri placed \$500 in a credit union that compounded interest semiannually. Her account had grown to \$633.39 after 4 years. What was the annual interest rate of the credit union? Solution . 633.39 500 1 r 8 , so 1.26678 1 r 8   1.26678 1/8 1 r 2
Dr. Raja Latif.Math 131 Summer 2005. Pg:3 1 r 1.029993 r 0.029993 which we round to r 0.03, 6% per year. Example 349Rolf53. Which should you choose: a savings account that starts with \$6000 and earns interest at 10% compounded semiannually for 10 years or a lump sum of \$ 16000 at the end of 10 years? Solution .For \$6000 invested for 10 years, S 6000  1.05 20 \$15919.79. The lump sum of \$16000 is somewhat better. Rolf349 Example 55. In 14 years an investment of \$8000 increases to \$18000 in an account that pays interest compounded semiannually. Find the annual interest rate. Solution . S 18000, P 8000, n 28 semiannual periods. 3
