Answer:1.5065x

Step-by-step explanation:x + (0.31x) + 0.15(1.31x)

x is the initial amount, 0.31x is the 31% of the original amount, and we’re adding that. The 15% earned the next year is on the new total of what he had after that first bump…x + 0.31x = 1.31x

Simplify:

x + (0.31x) + 0.15(1.31x)

= 1.31x + 0.1965x

=1.5065x
