    Work out her earnings in 2019.
    (b) Gretal invests $5000 at a rate of 2% per year compound interest.
    Calculate the value of her investment at the end of 3 years.
    (c) One month, Gretal spent a total of $360 on presents.
    She spent 1/5 of this total on presents for her parents.
    She spent 2/3 of the remaining money on presents for her friends.
    She spent the rest of the money on presents for her sisters.
    Calculate the percentage of the $360 that she spent on presents for her sisters.
    (d) Arjun earned $36515 in 2019.
    This was an increase of 9% on his earnings in 2018.
    Work out his earnings in 2018.
    (e) Arjun and Gretal each pay rent.
    In 2018, the ratio of the amount each paid in rent was Arjun : Gretal = 5 : 7.
    In 2019, the ratio of the amount each paid in rent was Arjun : Gretal = 9 : 13.
    Arjun paid the same amount of rent in both 2018 and 2019.
    Gretal paid $290 more rent in 2019 than she did in 2018.
    Work out the amount Arjun paid in rent in 2019.
