1) The balance after one year with compounding is increased by a factor
(1 +(.09/12)^12 = (1.0075)^12 = 1.093807
The effective annual interest rate is therefore 9.3807%
2) 8500*(1.093807)^5 = $ 13,308.29
3) After two years and withdrawing $5000, she is left with
8500*(1.093807)^2  5000
= 10,169.52  5000 = 5169.52
After three more years, that becomes
5159.52*(1.093807)^3 = $ 6751.98
