**Ms. Sue**, Tuesday, January 5, 2010 at 12:54pm1250 * 0.06 = $75 yearly interest

75 / 4 = $18.75 first quarter interest

1250 + 18.75 = $1,268.75 balance at the end of the first quarter

Repeat the above steps to find the balance after the second quarter.

**Shanta**, Tuesday, January 5, 2010 at 1:24pmActually the first steps are right except with compound interest you earn interest on interest, so just adding another 18.75 would not solve it. You have to account for the interest you earn the 1st quarter. So I got 1287.78

= 1287.78
