It looks like you're investing some amount $T$ annually, and compounding once at the end of the year with an interest rate $r$. You'd like to find the value $v_n$ after the n$^\text{th}$ year, given that $v_{n+1} = (v_n + T)(1+r)$, and that $v_1 = T(1+r)$ (as there's no initial 0$^\text{th}$ month investment).

This guy's not so hard to solve by looking for patterns: $$ v_{n+1} = v_1 (1+r)^n + T \sum_{k=1}^n (1+r)^k = T \frac{1+r}{r}\left((1+r)^{n+1}-1\right) ~~. $$ The amount invested annually is $12\times\$10000$, the annual rate is $0.1$, and the number of years (above $n+1$) is $15$, so the value of the investment will be ...
