Hi All,

This question is a variation on a typical Compound Interest question. Thus, we'll need the Compound Interest Formula:

Total = (Principal)(1 + R)^T where R is the interest Rate and T is the number of 'time periods'

In this question, the variables are:
Principal = $30,000 R = .02/day T = 8 weeks = 8(7) = 56 days Thus, the equation becomes: (30,000)(1.02)^56 Final Answer: GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made, Rich _________________ 760+: Learn What GMAT Assassins Do to Score at the Highest Levels Contact Rich at: Rich.C@empowergmat.com # Rich Cohen Co-Founder & GMAT Assassin Special Offer: Save$75 + GMAT Club Tests Free
