# Algorithm from Section 1.11

You put \$10,000 into a bank account that earns 5 percent year. How many years does it take for the account balance to be doubled?

Table
YearBalance
0\$10,000.00

(Close Table)
2. Repeat while the balance is less than \$20,000
1. Add a new row to the table.
2. In column 1 of the new row, put one more than the preceding year's value.
3. In column 2 of the new row, place the value of the preceeding balance, multiplied by 1.05.

3. Report the last number in the year column as the number of years required to double the investment.
