If $1000 is deposited in a certain bank account and remains in the account along with any accumulated interest, the dollar amount of interest,I, earned by the deposit in the first 'n' years is given by the formula I= 1000[(1+r/100)^n-1] where r is the annual rate of interest paid by the bank. Is the annual interest rate paid by the bank is greater than 8 %

1) The deposit earns a total of $210 in interest in the first two year
2) (1+r/100)^2>1.15

A) for me

From 1) We know the interest earned and the initial amount so can calculate interest rate.

From 2) Taking sq root of 1.15 is <8% So interest rate could be 7.5% or 20%

Second statement is: 2) (1+r/100)^2>1.15

Take root of both sides = (1+r/100) > 1.072 (approx)

Therefore interest could be 7.5%, 8% or higher - insufficient info to answer question.

Is that ok?
