Lori wants to deposit money into a bank account that earns 3.5% simple annual interest. Use the formula to find the amount of money that she should deposit so that she earns $7000 in interest after 5 years.

Interest for 5 years =$7000

Interest for 1 year = $1400

Principal = $1400/0.035 = 1400000/35 =$40000
