A(t) = P (1 + r/n)^nt
P = 5000, t = 7, r = .09, n = 2
A(7) = 5000 (1 + .09/2)^2(7)
A(7) = 5000 (1 + 0.045)^14
A(7) = 5000 (1.045)^14
A(7) = $9259.72 interest
5000 + 9259.72 = 14259.72
A(t) = P (1 + r/n)^nt
P = 6000, t = 5, r = .0410, n = 4
A(7) = 6000 (1 + .0410/4)^4(5)
A(7) = 6000 (1 + 0.01025)^20
A(7) = 6000 (1.01025)^20
A(7) = $7357.47 interest
6000 + 7357.47 = 13357.47
