Use the equation found in Example 7 to determine the amount of time it would take for your balance to double at an interest rate of

To determine

**To calculate:** The time required so that the deposited amount *P* (in dollars) will become double if the interest rate is

Explanation

**Given Information:**

The amount of *P* dollars is deposited at the interest rate of

**Formula used:**

The formula to compute the balance amount after *t* years when interest is compounded continuously is,

Where, *P* is the deposited amount, *A* is the amount after *t* years, *r* is the interest rate in decimals and *t* is the number of years.

The inverse property of logarithms for the expression

**Calculation:**

Consider that the deposited amount *P* (in dollars) will become double when the interest is compounded continuously at the rate of

As the amount will become double of the deposited amount after *t* years, then the amount after *t* years is

Simplify the rate as,

Substitute *P* for the amount deposited and *t* years in the formula“
