p =  39.95 %

#### Solution:

$10000 q^4 = 1300 \ \\ 10000 (1+p/100)^4 = 1300 \ \\ (1+p/100)^4 = 1300/10000 \ \\ \ \\ p = 100\cdot (1-\sqrt{ 1300/10000 }) = 39.95 \%$ We would be pleased if you find an error in the word problem, spelling mistakes, or inaccuracies and send it to us. Thank you! Tips to related online calculators
