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
