Read the following instructions in order to complete this assignment, and review the example of how to complete the math required for this assignment:

Solve problem 90 on page 304 of Elementary and Intermediate Algebra.

Problem from page 304,

Compounded semiannually. 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)to the 2 power represents the value of the investment after 1 year. Rewrite this expression without parentheses. Evaluate the polynomial if p=$200andr=10%

Be sure that you show all steps of the squaring of the binomial and multiplication along with any simplification which might be required.

Evaluate the polynomial resulting from step 1 using:

P = $200 and r = 10%, and also with

P = $5670 and r = 3.5%
