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

Interest = principal amount * interest rate *  time (years)

I = P *  I  * T

principal amount = $800

interest rate = 1.5% per annum

time = 5 years

Therefore:

I = $800 * 1.5/100  * 5

Interest   = 50

 Amount after five years ;

Add the original amount to the interest obtained

that is , $800+50 = $850

Hence amount earned after five years is = $850
