Answer:

Paid out value #color(green)(A = $ 121)#

Explanation:

P = Principal = $100, Rate of Interest R = 10%, Period N = 2 years

Amount A at the end of the period of 2 years at 10% compound interest rate is

#A = P (1 + (R/100))^N#

#A = 100 (1 + (10/100))^2#

#A = 100 *( (cancel(110) 11)/ (cancel(100) 10))^2#

#A = cancel(100) * (121/cancel(100)) = color(green)($ 121)#
