For monthly compounding (as opposed to annual), we need to calculate two things:

1. the monthly compounding interest:

annual interest/12=9%/12=0.75%=0.0075

2. the number of periods to cover 7 years

= 7*12 =84 (months)

The future value

= Principal * (1+interest)^periods

= 2000*1.0075^84

= $3746.40

(compare to simple interest

2000*(1+0.09*7)= $3260 < $3746, OK)
