To what amount will the following investment accumulate? 

$7,130 invested today for 19 years at 6%, compounded annually. Which formula would I work this with? I'm confused.

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

 principal=$7,130

time=19 years

 Rate=6%

Using the compound interest formula, we have that
P = 7130, r = 46/100 = 0.06, , t = 19. Therefore, n=1. 

n means the number of times which is compounded 

A=P(1+r/n)nt

7130(1+0.06)19

=$21,572.52

 find the difference to find the amount accumulated 

21,572.52-7130

=14,442

 THANK YOU FOR THE OPPORTUNITY
