**Damon**, Thursday, January 10, 2008 at 7:50pmFor starters, if the 6% is compounded quarterly, that is 6/4 or 1.5 % each three month period. (Percent interest is generally given as if for a year)

That means that every three months you multiply what you have in the bank by 1.015.

In a year, you compound four times, so you multiply by 1.015 four times or

$8,000 * 1.015*1.015*1.015*1.015

or of course

$8,000*1.015^4

or

$8,000 * 1.06136 (a little better than 6% simple)

or

$8490.91 which is to the nearest dollar $8491
