That looks pretty close. I'm not sure what the first requirement means though? Does that mean you invest an additional 10% each, on top of the 5000/year?

1) if a constant annual invest rate of 10% is expected

You have the second requirement.

I dont understand the first requirement. If you clarify it, perhaps someone can help.

Can you please answer the question above. Reposting without clarifying doesn't really add anything.

if it is continuous compounding, formula should look like this ?

5000*e^0.1*15 +

5000*e^0.1*14 +

.......

5000*e^0.1*1

```
data _null_;
do year=1 to 15;
CAPITAL+5000*constant('e')**(0.1*year);
put year= CAPITAL=;
end;
run;
```

No, because doing *1.1 each year will account for the compounding.

But this is an exercise for any actual calculation there are SAS functions that will handle this.

For Q1 is it invest rate or interest rate?

Your initial answer was correct for Q2.

@Ksharp code was correct then - it uses a continuous interest rate formula that you can find via google.

http://www.mathwarehouse.com/compound-interest/continuously-compounded-interest.php

This answer may not be correct, it depends partly on when you account for the 5000, beginning or end of year. This assumes beginning of the year.

Good Luck.

```
data want;
capital1=0;capital2=0;
do year=1 to 15;
capital1 = (capital1+5000)*constant('e')**0.1;
capital2 = (capital2+5000)*1.1;
output;
end;
run;
proc print data=want;
run;
```
