Use the compound interest formula to determine the final value of $1800 at 7% compounded continuously for 6 years.
  • The formula for continuous compound interest is A = Pert, where
    • A = Amount after the given time
    • P = Principal (initial investment)
    • e = natural number (approx. 2.7183)
    • r = interest rate (as a decimal)
    • t = number of years
P = $1800, r = 0.07, t = 6
A = Pert
A = (1800)e(0.07)(6)
A = 1800e0.42
A = 2739.53
 
The final value is $2,739.53
