Not what I had in mind.

Do you want a number of a formula? If you want a number, you need to give us more information, like the length of time the money is invested.

Either that, or I am completely misunderstanding the question.

I don't really understand the question, either.

RichN was closest. His board.

I just looked up an explanation of "e".
I think you needed to phrase it as, "in 1 year at 100% APR compounded continuously."

Television

Each episode of this series featured three separate stories, a Dracula story, a murder mystery, and a story about aliens living in an underground city in the old west. It was cancelled after one season, leaving two of the three stories unfinished.

Night Stalker. Would scare the crap out of me.

Not Night Stalker. Each of those episodes was a self contained story with Carl Kolchak as the central character.

In this series, each week gave you one chapter in each of three ongoing stories, and the three stories had nothing to do with each other. Each chapter usually ended with the hero of the story in peril, enticing you to come back next week in order to see how they would escape.

Correct.

I particularly remember the aliens and cowboys story being very original at the time. I also remember Michael Nouri made a decent Dracula. I don't remember much about Stop Susan Williams, except that Susan Anton was easy on the eyes.

I certainly remembered The Minnow. Had to search to learn that the name came from:
Who was Newton Minow, chairman of the FCC?

Correct!

G.I. creator Sherwood Schwartz believed that FCC chairman Newton Minow had ruined television, who in a famous speech referred to it as a "vast wasteland".

This man, whose name remains attached to an electric guitar component, really beat both Les Paul and Leo Fender to the punch in producing a viable electric, solid body, guitar. Fender, in particular “borrowed” many design features of this man’s guitar.

No, but I should add: capable of being played standing at a microphone.

Not who I was looking for. Hint. The guitar component I referred to is the vibrato tailpiece

Affirmative. TBIY

Paul Bigsby. Leo Fender used the idea of all tuners on one side of the headstock and the general shape of the headstock, which is similar to that on the Strat.
