If interest paid on an investment is \$25.21 for 50 days at an interest rate of 8.25%, what was the original amount invested if the exact interest method is used? (Round to the nearest cent).
I = P*r*t solving for P. Principal amount = I/r*t = 25.21/(.0825*50/365) = 25.21/0.011458= \$ 2200.21

patmarone, I don't know how you come up with the answer \$305.58 but it seems unrealistic for it to earn \$ 25.21 in 50 days. PLease provide your solution.
Patmarone, I'm flagging you for not providing the solution to your answer.
The user did not indicate whether the interest rate was per annum or for the 50 days so I just computed 25.21/0.0825 to get my answer. I'm not complaining your flagging of my answer. I'll just ask the user for confirmation next time. Thanks!

Climatologists warn of a tipping point when global temperatures trigger catastrophic events and sea levels rise more than 50 feet. What would cause the sea level to rise so greatly? (Points : 5) increased precipitation over the continents melting of the Greenland Ice Sheet thermal expansion of the oceans melting of the polar ice cap
Weegy: Various factors affect the volume or mass of the ocean, leading to long-term changes in eustatic sea level. [ The primary influence is that of temperature on seawater density and the amounts of water in rivers, lakes, glaciers, polar ice caps and sea ice. Over much longer geological timescales, changes in the shape of the oceanic basins and in land/sea distribution will also affect sea level. Observational and modelling studies of mass loss from glaciers and ice caps indicate a contribution to sea-level rise of 0.2 to 0.4 mm/yr averaged over the 20th century. ] (More)
