Bank A - 5.78% APR with semi annual compounding. Bank B - 5.75% APR with daily compounding.

Which bank would you use to maximize your return?

For Bank A - I did .0578*2=1.156. 2P/YR 1.156 NOM% shift EFF% = 1.16.

400000PV 5N 1.16 I/YR FV 41173.53.

Bank B - .0575*365=20.99 365P/YR 20.99 NOM% EFF% = 23.35

400000PV 5N 23.35 I/YR FV 40128.11

BANK A seems to be get higher yield if I did these correctly

**Reiny**, Friday, February 3, 2012 at 8:17pmbank A:

i = .0578/2 = .0289

n = 10

amount = 40000(1.0289)^10 = 53 185.31

bank B

i = .0575/365 = .000157534

n = 1825

amount = 40000(1.000157534)^1825 = 53 322.39

the yield of bank B is greater than A

I will try it again. I could swear in my notes he said we had to multiply. Thanks Again
