10 - 50% medium
over 50% strong

Match the following example output log (with user input shown like this):

Investor #1:
Initial amount? 100.00
Interest rate%? .03
Num. of months? 5
Final amount = $115.93
Profit = $15.93 (16%)

Investor #2:
Initial amount? 5.25
Interest rate? .08
Num. of months? 24
Final amount = $33.29
Profit = $28.04 (534%)

Have a nice day!
