Compound interest is interest added to the principal of a deposit or loan so that the added interest also earns interest from then on. This addition of interest to the principal is called compounding.

The formula for calculating compound amount is A=P(1+r)^n

Where

A=?= Accumulated amount

P=\$1,500=Principal amount

r=10%=rate of interest

n=25 y=number of years

Now put the value in the formula

A=1500(1+10%)^25

A=1500(10.834)

A=\$16252.06

The correct option is A
