So the 2nd part can be written as (1200/0.017)*(1.017^n  1) expand it to get (1200/0.017)(1.017^n)  1200/0.017 move the 1200/0.017 to the other side of the equal sign and with some factoring you will get 1200/0.017 = (1.017^n)*(16160.35  1200/0.017) isolate 1.017^n on one side of the equation. Use logarithm to solve and I think you will get an answer.
