**Reiny**, Thursday, June 10, 2010 at 11:18pmAs Lynn stated, you did not specify how many years.

For simplicity's sake, let's say they did this for 8 years

amount = 5000 [ (1+.05)^16 - 1 ]/.05

= 118287.46

notice I divided the rate by 2, since it is compounded semiannually, and doubled the years, because there are 16 half-years in 8 years

Whatever time you need, make the appropriate changes
