Expert Answer

 

1.Computation of the amount Alan would withdraw assuming the investment earns simple interest

Simple interest formula = PTR/100

here principle = $37,700

time = 10years

interest rate = 10%

simple interest = (37,700 * 10 * 10)/100 = $ 37,700

Total amount can be withdrawn by alan = (principle = simple interest) = 37,700 + 37,700 =$ 75,400

2.Compute the amount Alan would withdraw assuming the investment earns compound interest:

compound interest formula = p(1+r/100)n

= 37,700(1+10/100)10

= 37,700(11/10)10

= 37,700(1.1)10

   = 37,700 * 2.5937

= $ 97,784

Total amount can be withdrawn by alan    = $ 97,784.09
