A is the amount of the return.

P is the principal amount initially deposited.

r is the annual interest rate (expressed as a decimal).

n is the number of compound periods in one year.

t is the number of years.

Carry all calculations to six decimal places on each intermediate step, then round the

final answer to the nearest whole cent.

a) Calculate the return (A) if the bank compounds annually (n = 1). Round your

answer to the nearest whole cent.

A = P(1+r/n)^nt

A = 2000(1.08)^5 = 2000*1.469328 = 2938.656 or 2938.66
