Compound interest 2010-06-01
From Kenneth:
Hello: I have a question regarding the following compound interest and future value calculation.

Year 1 P + rP equals balance after the first year.
Year 2 (P + rP) + r(P + rP) equals balance after the second year.
Year 3 ? equals balance after the third year.

This question is in two parts.

1. What would follow for year three?

2. I know that a pattern will develop. What will it be so that I can determine the extended pattern for following years ?

Compound interest 2010-04-21
From Kenneth:
Let's say that an investor has $1000.00 to invest for 3 years at a rate of 5% at compound interest. Here is the formula:

M = 1000(1 + 0.05)^3 = $1157.62

If I want to change 1000(1 + 0.05) to (1000 + 0.05*1000) three times in a calculation instead of using (1 +0.05)^3, how would this be done?

I cannot get (1000 + 0.05*1000) + (1000 + 0.05*1000) + (1000 + 0.05*1000) to equal $1157.62.

I know that 1000(1.05)(1.05(1.05) will produce the answer, but I want to try to use the above non-factored calculation.
