I don't know how to solve this.

Would I use this equation A=Pe^(rt)

But still I don't know because even if I put the given info into the equation I still need P and A

**MathMate**, Wednesday, January 12, 2011 at 7:23pmThe quarterly interest is 5.25%/4=1.3125%.

Since interest is compounded quarterly, the total interest at the end of the year for an investment of 1000 is:

1000*1.013125^4

=1053.54

So the effective interest is

53.54/1000=5.354% (approximately)
