An investment

How long will it take for an investment to double at a simple interest rate of 5.10% p. A. ?
Express the answer in years and months, rounded up to the next month.

Result

y =  1
m =  2

Solution:

p=1+5.10100=1.051  pn=2 nlnp=ln2 n=ln(2)/ln(p)=ln(2)/ln(1.051)13.9348  n1=n=13.9348=14  y=n1/12=14/12=1p=1 + \dfrac{ 5.10 }{ 100 }=1.051 \ \\ \ \\ p^n=2 \ \\ n \ln p=\ln 2 \ \\ n=\ln(2) / \ln(p)=\ln(2) / \ln(1.051) \doteq 13.9348 \ \\ \ \\ n_{1}=\lceil n \rceil=\lceil 13.9348 \rceil=14 \ \\ \ \\ y=\lfloor n_{1} / 12 \rfloor=\lfloor 14 / 12 \rfloor=1
m=n112 y=1412 1=2m=n_{1} - 12 \cdot \ y=14 - 12 \cdot \ 1=2
