HELP! i know this is an easy question to solve but i need some help. THANKS for any help in advance! QUESTION: Determine, to the nearest half year, how long it will take $100 to amount to $500 at 6 1/2% compounded semi-annually. Using the formula A=P(1 + i)*to the power of*n where A is the final amount, P is the present value, i is the interest rate and n is the number of compounding periods i have gotten to: A=$500 P=$100 i=6.5%/2 (because it's semi-annually)=3.25% n=2 x n (because it's semi-annually) In the FORMULA" A = P(1+i)*to the power of*n 500 = 100(1+0.0325)*to the power of*2n 5 = 1.0325*to the power of*2n *I am sure the answer is right to this point, i'm just not sure of how to solve for the exponent 2n. thank you for any help!
