Find the amount in an account if
$2000 is invested at 6.125%,compounded
semi-anually,for 2 years.

A. $2,256.49
B. $2,252.50
C. $2,324.89
D. $544,757.84

One of these is the correct answer.
I am coming up with (D) 544,757.84

Can you check, because I am probably wrong.





















You are wrong. How can one invest 2000 dollars at a modest rate of interest for two years and get a half-million dollars?

Post your work, I will check.

Instead of calculating interest year-by-year, it would be simple to see the future value of an investment using a compound interest formula. The formula for compound interest is:

Pn = P0(1 + I)n


where:
Pn = Value at end of n time periods
P0 = Beginning Value
I = Interest
n = Number of years
