I thought the rule of 72 was as follows as above so if you take 72/12   12 being your % gain you get 6 so your money doubles 6 times. Than take the age you want to retire at minus your age 65 - 33 = 32  take 32 yrs / 6 = 5.33 or 5 so your money will double 5 times right? So if your 72/72 is 1 that means your money will double every year 72/72 = 1 33/1 = 33 so your money will double 33 times before you retire.
