Answer:

Interest, #I = $5033.31 - $4650 = $383.31#

Explanation:

The formula to calculate compound interest is:

#A = P(1 + R/100)^n" or " A = P(1 + r)^n#the Principal

Where A is the total Amount, including all interest
P = the Principal (invested amount)
R = Rate of interest as a percentage
r = percentage as a decimal
n = time in years.

To find the amount of interest earned #I = A-P#

#A = 4650(1+0.02)^4 " or "A = 4650(1+2/100)^4#

#A = $5033.31#
