Work Step by Step

Step 1 Use the formula A=P$e^{rt}$ to find the amount in a continuously compounded account, with $p=\$2000$, $t=3$, and $r=5.1\%=0.051$ A=$2000 \times$$e^{(0.051)(3)}$ Step 2 Simplify A=$2000 \times$$e^{0.153}$ Step 3 Evaluate e. Simplify for answer $A=2000(1.165325) \\A=\$2,330.649958 \\A\approx\$2,330.65$
