betty deposits $200 into an account that earns 5% interest compounded annually. mike deposits the same amount into an account that earns 5% simple interest. compare the account balances after 2 years

betty = 200+5% of 200 = 200+ 10=210 

          210+5% of 210= 210+ 10.5

          = 220.5

mike = 200*5%*2 = 200*5/100*2 =20

          = 200+20

         =220

betty earns more
