`t`

years,

`a`

is the principal (starting amount),

`r`

is the annual percentage rate,

`k`

is the number of times each year that the interest is compounded. (A) What values should be used for

`a,r`

, and

`k`

?

`a=`

`?`

`0^(8)`

`?`

os,

`k=1`

`?`

`0^(s)`

(B) How much money will Shante have in the account in 10 years? Answer
