  1. So you have the three years + what is left at the two years
    A=p(1+i)^n for the first three years BUT the rate was given for 5 years
    A=5000(1 +.05/2)^3x2
    A=5000(1.025)^6
    A=5000(1.159693418)
    A=5798.85 after the three years...
    Then he took out 3000 so the new Principal is 2798.47
    using A=p(1+i)^n
    You figure out the next 2 years :)
