    First term is 2000 * 1.04. Then plug into the geometric series formula.

    Isn't a=2000 and ar =2000*1.04?

    Not in this context, which is really annoying. In this context we're talking about the "end of the year" so a = 2000 * 1.04, although I will admit I haven't looked at the question too heavily
