Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!


A=P(1+r/n)^nt (formula for compound interest)

.where A=final amount,P=present amount,R=discount rate and t=time in years

A=$16,500(1+0.05/2)^2*5

A=$16,500(1+0.025)^10

A=$16,500(1.025)^10

A=$16,500*1.2864

A=$21,226.2 , this is the final amount after 5 years
