Thank you for help.
We need to get back 100,000.
After 3 years we have got back 73,000, so we need an extra 27,000.
The fourth year gives 34,150, so to get back 27,000 will only take part of the 4th year.
The proportion of the 4th year is 27,000 / 34,150 (or 0.79 of a year) 🙂
Great, thank you!!
May the force be with you!
And with you 🙂
