    Answer:

    Connor earns more interest than Wendy.

    Wendy earns an interest of 7262.50 while Connor earns an interest of 11312.90

    Step-by-step explanation:

    The initial amount that Wendy and Connor deposited is 8300.

    They both earn interests of 3.5%.

    We will calculate the interest of each of them.

    WENDY (Simple Interest)

    Simple Interest is given as:

    I = \frac{P*R*T}{100}

    where P = principal = 8300

    R = rate = 3.5%

    T = number of years = 25 years

    Therefore, her interest will be:

    I = \frac{8300 * 3.5 * 25}{100} = 7262.50

    CONNOR (Compound Interest)

    Compound interest is given as:

    I = P(1 + R)^T -P

    Therefore, his interest will be:

    I = 8300(1 + \frac{3.5}{100})^{25} - 8300\\  \\I = 8300( 1 + 0.035)^{25} - 8300\\\\I = 8300(1.035)^{25} - 8300\\\\I = (8300*2.363) - 8300\\\\I = 19612.9 - 8300\\\\I = 11312.90

    Therefore, Connor earns more interest than Wendy. Wendy earns an interest of 7262.50 while Connor earns an interest of 11312.90.

    Note: The amount in the question is unitless, that is why my answers are also unitless.
