A grandmother is looking for a plan to finance her new grandchild’s college education




A grandmother is looking for a plan to finance her new grandchild’s college education. She has $25,000 to invest. Search the internet and locate a long-range investment plan, CD, Savings Bond, etc, for the grandmother. The plan is to earn compound interest.

* Research the annual interest rate for your investment. This is r.

* State the time in years for the investment (as in when the new grandchild will be attending college). This is t.

* State the number of compounding periods per year. This is n.

* Model the future value of Grandma’s investment as an exponential function, with time as the independent variable:

o F(t) = P(1 + r/n) nt

* State the future value of Grandma’s investment.
