Answer #1

Answer,

Calculation of Compound interest

Equation is = **FV =I * (1+ r/n )n**

Here, I = Principle amound, r/n = rate of interest divided by number of compounding, n = period of investment.

So we can apply this equation in the given problem to solve.

1. a. Interst rate 6.2, Semi annually compounding

$ 2500 * (1+ .062/2)12

**= $ 5201.73**

**2. b. **Interst rate 7.63% ,quaterly
compounding for 6 years

$ 2500 * (1 + .0763/4)6

**= $ 3934.48**

3. c. Interest rate 8.9%, Monthly compounding 10 Years.

$ 2500 * (1+ .089/12 ) 10

**=6067.86 **

**4. d.** Inetrest rate 10 % daily compounding 3
Years

$ 2500 * (1+ .10/365 )3

**= 3374.51**
