Hello. I understand how you get e with interest. Like (1 + 1/n)^n, where n becomes larger you get closer to e. P = C e^rt
P = future value
C = initial deposit
r = interest rate (expressed as a fraction: eg. 0.06)
n = # of times per year interest is compounded
t = number of years invested
But just because you get e from (1 + 1/n)^n, where n is a large number, why do banks an equation (P = C e^rt ) with e to calculate interest?
