If my interpretation is wrong please do tell me and I shall correct my answer

Principal, P = $45,700
Amount, A = $99,000
Rate of interest, r = 12.4% = 12.4/100 = 0.124
Time, t = ?
The compound interest formula for continuous compounding is
Substitute the values of A, P and r into the equation
ANSWER: Time, t = 6.23 years
