Calculate the future value of the following:
$5,000 compounded annually at 6% for 5 years
$5,000 compounded semiannually at 6% for 5 years
$5,000 compounded quarterly at 6% for 5 years
$5,000 compounded annually at 6% for 6 years

Reiny,
I will do this one:
"$5,000 compounded quarterly at 6% for 5 years"
Amount = 5000(1.015)^20
= ....
notice the value of i is .06/4 (compounded quarterly)
and n = 5*4 = 20, the number of quarter years.
Do the others the same way
