Swan Furnace Cleaners wants to add 0.50% to the effective rate of interest on its credit card. If it currently charges a nominal rate of 4.25% compounded semi-annually, at what value should it set the new nominal rate?

The answer for this question is 4.74%,

the formula for this question is

=total - 1

I know that j=4.25%
f=(1+.02125)^2 -1

but the right answer is 4.74%, i cant seem to figure out how to get that answer.
