Amount = principal( 1+i)^n

where i is the interest rate per period expressed as a decimal, and n is the number of interest periods

for yours i = .03

n = 5

Amount = 1000(1.03)^5

= ....

ahhh, just read your question again.

I think your are saying that $1000 is deposited EACH year for 5 years

Amount = deposit [1.03^5 - 1]/.03

= 5309.14
