Accepted Solution

A:

AnswerOption 1 by $10,851.Step-by-step explanation:The second option is a geometric series with first term 3 and common ratio. 2.Amount in the account after 14 years = 3 * (2^14) - 1) / (2 - 1)= $49.149The second option: the amount after 25 years will be 10,000 + 25(2000)= 60,000.So the first option results in more money .It is 60,000 - 49,149 - $10851.
