    Now work backwards to get the answer:

    1) Divide 120150 by 60100 to get 1.998668885

    2) Find the 11th root of ANS:

    3) Minus 1 from your answer to give 0.064976629

    4) Multiply your answer by 100 to give you the rate of x%, which is 6.5 to 1d. p

    x=6.5 (1 d. p.)

    Btw, this answer also works if you plug it back into the equati
