I've tries multiplying then multipling the days time years but come up with wrong answer

There is no "day times years." Interest rates are quoted annually unless otherwise stated. So multiplying by "time" means either just multiplying by the years (no days involved), or multiplying by a proportion of a year if the term is less than a year. (Like x 7/12 means 7 months

*out of*12 months total, or x 60/360 means 60 days*out of*360 days total. This gets the proportion of the year.)Since you're just trying to do 2 multiplications and that's it, I'll assume for the moment you're doing simple interest, though you really need to state all the information.

Principle x rate x time

760 x .05 x 4

Note this gives you the interest. Make sure of what you're solving for. Are they asking for the interest, or the maturity value?

If it compounds annually, that would be M = P(1 + r)

^{n}, but that isn't 2 multiplications like you describe.
