P dollars is invested at annual interest rate for 1 year. if the interest is compounded semiannually, then the polynomial p(1+r/2)^2 represents the value of the investment after 1 year. could you rewrite this expression without parentheses. Evaluate the polynomial if p = $200 and r = 10 2. ## plug it in p(1+r/2)^2 plug in: p =$200 and r = 10

$200(1+10/2)^2$200(1+5)^2

$200(6)^2$200(36)

\$7200

make sense?
