 Question 203315: Hi I need help with a word problem involving interest rates Please. P dollars is invested at annual interest rate r for 1 year. If the interest is compounded semiannually, then the polynomial P(1+r/2)^2 represents the value of the investment after 1 year. Rewrite this expression without parentheses. Evaluate the polynomial if P= \$200 and r= 10%. My Try: I know I have to substitute the numbers in for the variables, but not sure how to solve after that. 200(1+10%/2)^2 = 200+220/2=110^2=220??
