Amount invested = 50,000
Rate of return = 7%
Period = 5 years

Value of investment = Amount invested * (1 + Rate of return)^Period
Value of investment = 50,000 * 1.07^5
Value of investment = 70,127.59

Amount deposited = 200,000
Desired sum = 500,000
Period = 10 years

Desired sum = Amount deposited * (1 + Rate of return)^Period
500,000 = 200,000 * (1 + Rate of return)^10
2.50 = (1 + Rate of return)^10
1.0960 = 1 + Rate of return
Rate of return = 0.0960 or 9.60%
