a. Using the given formula, substitute \(t=0\) through \(t=10\). The balance should be in dollars:

\(t | B\ \text{(dollars)}\ 0 | 1200 1 | 1260 2 | 1323 3 | 1389.2 4 | 1458.6 5 | 1531.5 6 | 1608.1 7 | 1688.5 8 | 1772.9 9 | 1861.6 10| 1954.7\)

b.From the table in part (a), you will have at least $1500 after 5 years \((t=5)(t=5)\).
