 Consumer Mathematics - Compound Interest (Posted on 2006-10-04)
A boy invests a sum of \$4000 on his 10th birthday in the year 1996, with an annual interest rate of 7%, compounded every six months. During some stage of the investment, the interest rate changes to an annual rate of 6%, still compounded every six months. On the boy's 18th birthday, the boy checks his account to see a sum of \$6770. At what point in time did the interest rate change from 7% to 6%?

Excel spread sheet gave me a drop in interest rates on the boy's birthday in 2002. He was 16 at the time, wondering why he didn't invest in Google when he was 12.
