F = final \(\rightarrow\) 30 000
P = principal \(\rightarrow\) 2 458
t = years \(\rightarrow\) 10
n = compounding periods per year \(\rightarrow\) 1 (annual)
r = interest rate

Compound interest formula: \(F=P\left(1+\frac{r}{n}\right)^{nt}\)

\(30000=2458\left(1+r\right)^{10}\)

\(\frac{30000}{2458}=\left(1+r\right)^{10}\)

\(\sqrt[10]{\frac{30000}{2458}}=1+r\)

\(\sqrt[10]{\frac{30000}{2458}}-1=r\)

\(r=0.2842\)

\(\therefore r=28.4\%\)
