An investment of \(\$24,\!000\) is made in a government bond that will pay\( 1\%\) bi-monthly interest (meaning that the investment will increase by \(1\%\) every two months). At the end of five years, what is the total number of dollars in this investment? Express your answer to the nearest whole number.

 

Thx in advance

We have six interest periods within a year....so we have  5 * 6  =  30 interest compoundings

 

So....after 5 years we have

 

24000(1.01)^(5 * 6)   =  24000(1.01)^30 ≈  $32,348
