Answer #1

Compound Interest: _{}

** P:** the principal, amount invested
=1000

** A:** the new balance (we need to
calculate A)

** t:** the time = 2 years

** r:** the rate, (in decimal form) 8 %

** n:** the number of times it is
compounded per year. 4 times

Principle | 1000 |

Annual Interest Rate | 8% |

Compound Period Per Year | 4 |

Years (converting 2 years 7 months to years) | 2.583 |

Amount Earned as per formula given above |
1171.659 |

Formula Used = 1000*(1+0.08/4)^(4*2.583)=1227.035 | |
