But I understood how you got this values: 30000,1.10, 1.20 etc. But I didn't understand how this equation obtained in my solution: 30000 [1+10/100]^2 x [1+20/100]  30000 ?

But the question asked for "total interest earned" for those two year. That is the total amount at the end of the second year minus the original amount: $\displaystyle 3000[1+ 10/100]^2(1+ 20/100) 3000$. Last edited by skipjack; May 25th, 2018 at 02:03 PM.
