    Require help on part B of this question: http://prntscr.com/b7n4e3
    Also my attempted solution: http://prntscr.com/b7n6ei
    However this is incorrect, I do not understand why so any help would be greatly appreciated!

    ANSWER: http://prntscr.com/b7n6v1

    Because the question wants the year and not the term you do not use the (n-1) as the power you instead use (n) by itself, and since you can't have a decimal as the year, you round 15.24 up to the 16th year, which is 2015. Everything else was fine though.
