*simple*interest for 15 years on $1000 and added to $2200 to give $2650.

Compound interest formula are based on the number of*periods*, n, the interest was compounded.

The interest being compounded 4 times a year, so there are 15*4=60 periods of 3 months each. The corresponding interest rate for*each*period is therefore r = 3%/4=0.0075.

The formula for the future value using compound interest is:

FV = Principal * (1+r)^n

=2200*1.0075^60

=2200*1.565681

=$3444.50
