The compound interest derives from

I = P[(1 + i)^n - 1] where P = the amount invested, i = the decimal equivalant of the periodic interest rate and n = the number of interest bearing periods.

Therefore, P = 8000, i = 6/100(12) = .015 and n = 4.

I = 8000[(1 + 6/100(4))^4 - 1]

I = 8000[1.015^4 - 1]

I = 8000[1.06136 - 1] = $490.91 = $491
