I'm assuming you mean the rate changes to 9 % after 3 years.

Pt = Po(1+r)^n.

r = (10%/4) / 100% = 0.025 = Quarterly % rate exprssed as a decimal.

n = 3 yrs * 4 comp / yr. = 12 Comp. periods.

Pt = $9000(1.025)^12 = $12,104 After 3

years.

r = (9%/2) / 100% = 0.045 = Semi-annual

@ rate expressed as a decimal.

n = 2 Comp./yr * 2 yrs = 4 Comp.periods

Pt = $9000(1.045)^4 = $10.732.67.

Total value = $12,104.00 + 10,732.67 =

$22,836.67.
