The formula as you know is A = P ( 1 + (r / n)) ^ nt and the answer from my calculator as a check is \$3173.75 saved total.

Here P is \$2000, r is 0.08, n is 1 (times per year compounded), and t is 6

So you would key it in like this
1.08

6

2000

### Please help me solve this equation. What is the principal that must be invested for 6 years at 10.5% to earn R2200.50 simple interest

With simple interest, there is no compounding. To earn 2200.50 interest in six years, you need to earn 2200.50/6 = 366.75 each year. In order to earn 366.75 at 10.5%, you need a principal of 366.75/10.5% = 3492.86.

If the interest is compounded annually then you only need to invest 2682.13.

### What is the intrest on 800 at 6% for 4 years

I if it compound interest it will be :
Year 1 : £800 / 100 = £8*6 = £48 then + £800 = £848
Year 2 : £848 / 100 = £8.48*6 = £50.88 then + £848 = £898.88
Year 3 : £898.88 / 100 = £8.98*6 = £53.93 then + £898.88 = £952.81
Year 4: £952.81 / 100 = £9.52*6 = £57.16 then + £952.81 = £1,009
By Year Four it will equal £1,009 give a pound or two because I have rounded it down.

### I cannot get the textbook answer (online calculators are also the same as textbook answer) using my sharp calculator EL738: Monthly payment for \$184,500 at 6.75% interest semi annually, for 5 year term...

Your result is for the 6.75% interest compounded monthly. The problem states that the interest is compounded semiannually. This makes a difference in the effective interest rate.

A 6.75% APR compounded semiannually gives an effective interest rate of about 6.864%:
Press 2 , 6 . 7 5 2nd >EFF

Converting this to APR gives about 6.657%:
Press 1 2 , 6 . 8 6 4 2nd >APR

If you use 6.657 for the interest rate instead of 6.75 you should get the correct result.

### What buttons do I push in what order to figure compound interset. if I start with\$15,000.00 at 6% interset for 25 years. I am on a texas instrument ba 2 plus

If the interest is compounded monthly:

2nd [CLR TVM] (clear any existing results)
1 5 0 0 0 _/- PV (present value, negative because you're paying it out)
6 I/Y (annual interest rate)
25 2nd [*P/Y] N (25 years)
CPT FV (compute future value, see 66,974.55)

If the interest is compounded annually:

2nd [CLR TVM] (clear any existing results)
1 5 0 0 0 _/- PV (present value, negative because you're paying it out)
6 I/Y (annual interest rate)
2nd [P/Y] 1 ENTER 2nd [QUIT] (one compounding period per year)
25 N (25 years)

### I have a TI30XA and i'm trying to use it to find the balance of a compound interest problem. the problem is \$5000 is invested at an annual interest rate of 6% for 10 years how can i use the calcuator find...

A = P(1 + r/q)nq is the formula you use. first write it all out, where P is the principle or \$5000, r is the rate of 6%, q is the times per year so it would be 12 if done monthly, and n is how many years which would be 10. hope this helps.

### TI 83

Yes you can use it, here is the formula: Y= V(t+ (i/c))^(tc) V=amount put in, t=time, i=intrest rate, c= amount of times it is compounded.
(I know this because I have a TI-83 calculator)
