A house is rented for $2000 per quarter, with each quarter's rent payable in advance. If money is worth 2%, compounded quarterly, and the rent is deposited in an account, what is the future value of the rent for one year?

Assume 2% is per quarter (not per annum).

so R=1.02, n=4 quarters, and rent, P=$2000.

Future value

P(R+R^2+R^3+R^4)

= PR(1+R+R^2+R^3)

=PR (R^4-1)/(R-1)

=2000*1.02*(1.02^4-1)/(1.02-1)

=$8408.08
