I need to modify the program to use annual interests rates of 3%, 4%, and 5%.

After that I need to modify the program to make it so the user enters the dollar amount of the deposit, the interest rate or rates, and the number of years.

I'm a design student at New England Tech but before we can go full design they want to make sure we know for sure if we want to be a designer or a programmer and so we need to take C++ classes which I suck at so any help would be appreciated.
