    (1+0.10/12)^(12t)=2.......simplify

    (1.008333)^(12t)=2..........take log of both sides

    log((1.008333)^(12t))=log(2)

    (12t)log(1.008333)=log(2)

    12t=log(2)/log(1.008333)

    t=log(2)/(12log(1.008333))

    t≈6.96031

    Wonderfully-done as always. You are gifted. I wonder who gave you this talent. God? I think so.
