    The correct answer is A) $1249.

    Explanation:
    The amount of interest is calculated using the formula
    A=p(1+\frac{r}{n})^{nt},

    where a is the amount of principal, r is the interest rate as a decimal number, n is the number of times per year the interest is compounded, and t is the number of years.

    Our principal is $750, the interest rate is 4%=4/100=0.04, n is 1, and t is 13:
    A=750(1+\frac{0.04}{1})^{13\times1}=750(1+0.04)^{13}=750(1.04)^{13}=1248.81,

    which rounds to 1249.

    Answer:

    A. $1249.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    We have been given that Juno deposited $750 in a savings account that earns 4% interest compounded annually. We are asked to find the amount of money in the account after 13 years.

    To solve our given problem, we will use compound interest formula. A=P(1+\frac{r}{n})^{nt}, where,

    A = Amount after t years,

    P = Principal amount,

    r = Interest rate in decimal form,

    n = Number of times interest is compounded per year,

    t = Time in years.

    Let us convert our given interest rate in decimal form.

    4\%=\frac{4}{100}=0.04

    Upon substituting our given values in compound interest formula we will get,

    A=\$750(1+\frac{0.04}{1})^{1\cdot 13}

    A=\$750(1+0.04)^{13}  

    A=\$750(1.04)^{13}  

    A=\$750\times 1.665073507310388  

    A=\$1248.805130482791\approx \$1249  

    Therefore, there will be $1249 in Juno’s account after 13 years and option A is the correct choice.
