D(t) = 10,000 {1+(r/100)}t. What amount will the deposit grow to in 3 years?

(1) D(t) = 11,000
(2) r =10

I think the answer is C.

We know t = 3 so, D(t) = 10,000*(1 + r%)*3

(1) Given D(t), the equation can be solved. Sufficient
(2) Given r, the equation can be solved. Sufficient

In fact D(t) itself is the answer devilmirror wrote: nikhilpoddar wrote:$10,000 is deposited in a certain account that pays r percent annual interest compounded
