simple interest per year, costruct a table in C++ showing how much money the native population would have at the end of each 50- year period, starting in 1626 and ending 400 years latter.

I'm having problems when i try to calculate the total amount of money every 50 year period.

Thanks in advance.

## Homework Equations

simple Interest = Principal amount * Interest rate * years

## The Attempt at a Solution

#include <iostream>

#include <cmath>

#include <iomanip>

using namespace std;

int main ()

{

float year;

double rate, interest, totMoney;

year = 1626;

rate = .05;

cout << " Year Interest gained Total Money" << endl;

cout << "-----------------------------------------------"<< endl;

cout << endl;

while( year <= 2026)

{

interest = 24 * .05* 50;

totMoney = 24 + interest;

cout << setw(7) << year << setw(15) << interest << setw(15)<< totMoney << endl;

cout << endl;

totMoney ++;

year += 50;

}

return 0;

}
