Scheme Executable Terminating Prematurely

Scheme Executable Terminating Prematurely

Scheme Executable Terminating Prematurely

(OP)
The following program is my first scheme program that I designed to calculate the values of the variables in the compound interest formula and the compounded continuously formula. I used DrRacket to create an executable, but when I run it in Terminal (Mac), it ends after only the introduction (the part that displays the syntax) and doesn't allow the user to actually use the defined functions. How can I allow the executable to continue and allow the user to actually use the functions without simply stopping after the introduction?
