thx

Interest= (Principal x %Rate per year x Time)/100
Here principal is the amount invested
If your time is in months divide it by 12
Principal + interest = amount ($800) • Jan 28th 2009, 08:52 AM makaveli89 i don't get it. can u please go more into detail. i tried as equation: 1.2x^1.75 = 800 but it doesnt work, i guess its wrong. • Jan 29th 2009, 03:14 AM ADARSH I think this might be helpful.........

Investment =?

800=Investment+Interest

$Interest=\frac{Investment*21*20}{12*100}$:D

1-"Money" has to be invested in the bank to get a profit at the rate of 20% annually this "Money " is called investment and the profit is called interest(Nod) and the value that you need to get is amount (800$) 2- according to your question you need to get 800$ after 21 months at the rate of interest (20% per annum)

3-The formula used here is

$Interest=\frac{Investment*Months*\text {Rate of interest}}{12*100}$

$Amount= Investment+Interest$

(Wait)Now which point you dont get? or is it the fourth option

4)All of these(Bow)

what is the final equation?

this one
http://www.mathhelpforum.com/math-he...e06e0d5c-1.gif

which is, 20 = 21*0.2*x / 12*100

????
is that correct because i think its wrong cause the result is not correct.
