# Investment A principal of $5000 is deposited in a savings account that earns an interest rate of r (in decimal form), compounded continuously. The amount A ( r , t ) after t years is A ( r , t ) = 5000 e r t .Use this function of two variables and a spreadsheet to complete the table.Number of Years Rate 5 10 15 20 25 0.02 0.03 0.04 0.05 0.06 To determine To calculate: The amount after the different years and rate of interest given in the table if the amount is given by the function A(r,t)=5000ert, where r is rate of interest compound continuously and t is time in years. Explanation Given Information: Function is A(r,t)=5000ert and principle amount is 5000 dollar. The provided table is,  Numbers of years Rate 5 10 15 20 25 0.02 0.03 0.04 0.05 0.06 Calculation: Consider the function, A(r,t)=5000ert Use excel spreadsheet as below to find the amounts as below, Step 1: Open the Excel spreadsheet and write the given rates in the cell A2 to A6 and write the different years in the cell B1, C1, D1, E1 and F1 as shown below, Step 2: Go to cell B2 and write the formula as, =5000*EXP(A2*B$1)
