There is no flaw in my math. Your math is wrong, the interest stated is 2.25% annually, not 1.0225% as you state.

Hmm, let's look in my UNIVERSITY TEXTBOOK!!!

S=P(1+r/100)^n

where S= final sum, P= principal (original sum of money), r= rate of interest, and n= years.

In this case, P=0.93, r=2.25 and n=1000.

0.93*(1+2.25/100)^1000

= 0.93*(1.0225)^1000

= 4,283,508,450, or $4.28 billion.

I remember that lecture well, because a HOT blonde was sitting next to me. What an hour that was!
