[00:00:00] Diego deposited a certain sum of money in a bank 2 years ago. If the bank had been paying interest at the rate of 5% compounded continuously and he has \$11,000 on deposit today, what was his initial deposit?

[00:00:26] Hi, how are you? Do you know how to get started on this problem?

Guest (Customer)
[00:00:46] Hello! I'm good, i think so. I will do what i think is correct on the board.
[00:03:01] is that right?
[00:03:05] that's as far as i know..

Cody G (Tutor)
[00:03:15] That's great!
[00:03:24] So you want to solve for x
[00:03:38] Which is your initial deposit
[00:04:22] So just divide both sides by the exponential to solve for x
