    Answer:

    After 7.5 years we will have enough money in the account to purchase the car.      

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Amount needed to be saved = $10000

    Principal = $6500

    So, Simple Interest = $3500

    Rate of Interest = 7.5%

                             = 0.075

    Now, Simple Interest = Principal × Rate × Time

    ⇒ 3500 = 6500 × 0.075 × Time

    ⇒ 3500 = 487.5 × Time

    ⇒ Time = 7.18 years ≈ 7.5 years

    Hence, after 7.5 years we will have enough money in the account to purchase the car.
