#### Solution

$A = P \left( 1 + \frac{R}{100} \right)^n$
$13, 230 = 12, 000 \left( 1 + \frac{5}{100} \right)^n$
$\left( 1 . 05 \right)^n = \frac{13, 230}{12, 000}$
$\left( 1 . 05 \right)^n = 1 . 1025$
$\left( 1 . 05 \right)^n = \left( 1 . 05 \right)^2$
On comparing both the sides, we get:
n = 2
Thus, the value of n is two years.
