If you solve the problem the two are equal; how can you derive 12.68% compounded yearly from 12% per year compounded monthly?

**Reiny**, Thursday, March 27, 2008 at 9:17pmLet the rate compounded yearly be i

then (1+i)^1 = (1+.12/12)^12

1+i = 1.01^12

1+i = 1.126825

i = .1268..

so the annual rate is 12.68%
