Question

In your answers, you should properly show your work by writing down your entries into the calculator. For instance, if you use the TVM worksheet of your financial calculator to compute how long it takes to double your account balance given 5% annual interest rate, you should write down your entries as: I/Y=5, PV=-1, PMT=0, FV=2, CPT N=? --- the question mark here stands for your answer to the question.
