$2.00 invested at 4% annual interest at the end of 8 years \(= (1.04)^8*2 = $2.74\)

Answer: option D


@Bunual : Keen to see official answer to see How you do the calculation of \(1.04^8\) without calculator as per GMAT standard.

The question doesn't say whether it is simple interest or compound. Since nothing is mentioned and the time period is 8 years, I am inclined to assume simple interest and move on.

A = P (1 + RT/100) = 2 (1 + 4*8/100) = $2.64

Answer (C)

Answer (C)


Don't you think, That would be a very specific assumption???

In general case, If nothing is mentioned about the interest calculation whether it's SIMPLE INTEREST or COMPOUND INTEREST then the normal understanding goes with COMPOUND Interest as Simple interest has disappeared from practicality
