CONTINUOUSLY COMPOUNDED INTEREST FORMULA amount at the end Principal (amount at start) annual interest rate (as a decimal) time (in years)

Suppose \$5000 is put into an account that pays 4% compounded continuously. How much will be in the account after 3 years? Example 1

If interest is compounded continuously at 4.5% for 7 years, how much will a \$2000 investment be worth at the end of 7 years? Example 2

How long will it take \$3000 to double if it is invested in an account that pays 3% compounded continuously? Example 3

If \$8000 is invested in an account that pays 4% interest compounded continuously, how much is in the account at the end of 10 years? Example 4
