Continuously Compounded Interest

A Limit Involving e Numerically evaluate the following limit: x 101001000 10000 100000 1000000 10000000 f(x)f(x) 2.5942.7052.7172.718 2.71828 2.7183

Compound Interest P = Principal Amount (original) r = decimal rate ( % ÷ 100 ) t = time in years n = number of intervals

A Limit Involving Compound Interest Analytically evaluate the following limit: Rewrite the limit so it resembles the limit involving e. Let x = n/r. This limit represents interest that is compounded infinitely many times a year (continuous).

Continuously Compounded Interest P = Principal Amount (original) r = decimal rate ( % ÷ 100 ) t = time in years
