Please help with the process on how to work this out

Is it more profitable to receive $2000 now or $3500 in 10 years?  Assume that money can earn 6% interest compounded monthly.

Hi mom;

I would take the 2000 right now and invest it at the 6% compounded monthly.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
Always satisfy the Prime Directive of getting the right answer above all else.
