Answer is:

Given A=96000, P=67785  and r = 8.7%

We know that, continuous compound interest formula is A = Pe^(rt)

where
P = principal amount
r = annual interest rate
t =  years
A = amount after t

Now
Use A = Pe^(rt) with A=96000, P=67785  and r = 0.087

Therefore, 96000 = 67785 e^(0.087 t)

96000/ 67785 = e^(0.087 t)

1.42 = e^(0.087 t)

log (1.42) = 0.087 t

0.351 = 0.
087 t

t = 0.351/0.087

t = 4.034

There are many methods to solve the simple interest, compound interest and continuous compound interest this was the one method which i solved for you.
