1. David invests $10,000 in a savings account that pays 3.5% simple interest. If David makes no withdrawals or deposits to the account, how much will be in the account after 7 years.
Correct Answer
C. C
Explanation
The correct answer is C.
This is because simple interest is calculated by multiplying the principal amount (in this case, $10,000) by the interest rate (3.5%) and the number of years (7).
So, the amount in the account after 7 years would be $10,000 + ($10,000 * 0.035 * 7) = $10,000 + $2,450 = $12,450.

4. Jaxon invests $100 into an account at a rate 2%. He plans on keeping the account open for 15 years. If it is a simple interest account, how much money will he have in the account?
Correct Answer
C. C
Explanation
Jaxon invests $100 into an account at a 2% interest rate. Since it is a simple interest account, the interest earned each year will be the same. To calculate the interest earned per year, we multiply the principal amount ($100) by the interest rate (2%) and divide by 100. Therefore, the interest earned per year is $2. After 15 years, Jaxon will have earned a total interest of $30 ($2 x 15). Adding this interest to the principal amount, Jaxon will have $130 in the account. Therefore, the correct answer is C.

Steve deposited $5,000 in a savings account that pays 4% interest compounded annually. Which equation could be used to find the value of the account after 3 years?
Correct Answer
B. B
Explanation
Equation B could be used to find the value of the account after 3 years. This equation represents the compound interest formula, which is A = P(1+r/n)^(nt), where A is the final amount, P is the principal amount (initial deposit), r is the annual interest rate (as a decimal), n is the number of times interest is compounded per year, and t is the number of years. In this case, the principal amount is $5,000, the annual interest rate is 4% (or 0.04), interest is compounded annually (n = 1), and the time period is 3 years (t = 3).

10. Willa deposited $5,000 in an account that pays 6% interest compounded annually. Which expression can be used to find the value of her investment after 5 years?
Correct Answer
A. A
Explanation
The correct answer is A. The expression A = 5000(1 + 0.06)^5 represents the value of Willa's investment after 5 years. The initial amount of $5,000 is multiplied by (1 + 0.06) raised to the power of 5, which represents the annual interest rate of 6% compounded annually over 5 years. This calculates the future value of the investment after 5 years.

11. Kelly plans to deposit her graduation money into an account and leave it there for 4 years while she goes to college. She receives $750 in graduation money and she deposits it into an account that earns 4.25% interest compounded annually. How much will be in Kelly’s account at the end of four years if she makes no other deposits or withdrawals into the account?
Correct Answer
D. D
Explanation
Kelly plans to deposit her graduation money into an account that earns 4.25% interest compounded annually. Since she is not making any other deposits or withdrawals into the account, the amount in her account at the end of four years can be calculated using the formula for compound interest:
A = P(1 + r/n)^(nt)
Where:
A = the final amount in the account
P = the principal amount (initial deposit)
r = the annual interest rate (4.25%)
n = the number of times interest is compounded per year (1, since it is compounded annually)
t = the number of years (4)
Plugging in the values, we have:
A = 750(1 + 0.0425/1)^(1*4)
Simplifying the expression, we get:
A = 750(1.0425)^4
Calculating further, we find:
A ≈ 750(1.181032)
A ≈ $885.77
Therefore, at the end of four years, there will be approximately $885.77 in Kelly's account.
