NEED TO ANSWER ALL TWO DISCUSSION QUESTIONS… 1. The Project Manager’s success

NEED TO ANSWER ALL TWO DISCUSSION QUESTIONS… 
1. The Project Manager’s success or failure will be determined, ultimately, by the bottom-line.
For this week’s discussion, comment on the following:
What are the tools and ways that project managers monitor and control projects? What are good methods of monitoring? How important is it to monitor the costs of a project? When should a project manager intervene?
For Example:Cost variation analysis is one way a Project Manager manages by exception. If a project task is projected to cost $1000.00 but the actual cost was $1002.00, should a Project Manager be concerned? $998.00? $1100.00? $775.00?
2. Please watch the video and answer all of the questions below.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gyiiqUQgEeA&feature=youtu.beIn your own words, describe the difference between compound and simple interest.
Pick an amount that you would like to invest in an account. This value should be between $5,000 and $50,000. Using this principal, see how much interest would be earned in 5 years in the following situations:
In an account earning 3.2% simple interest. (Video Help)  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZWCXrbnMN-E&feature=youtu.be
In an account earning 3.2% compounded annually. (Video Help)  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gnt4iL9gTaE&feature=youtu.be
Using your results in part 2, which account would you prefer to invest your money into? Which account will earn you more money in the long run? How do you think compound interest might affect you in the future? Hint: Think of paying interest as well as saving it.
