Compound Interest (Continuously) - Concept

Concept Concept (1)

Problems that involve continuous compound interest use a different equation from problems that have finitely compounded interest, but the continuous compound interest equation is also an exponential equation. We use many of the same methods for calculating continuous compound interest as we do finitely compounded interest. To calculuate compound interest, we can use logarithms and methods for solving exponential equations.
