  • consumer math - ,

    Pt = 400(1+r)^n.

    r = (3%/4) / 100% = 0.0075 = Quarterly
    % rate expressed as a decimal.

    n = 4comp periods/yr * 2yrs = 8 Compounding periods.

    Pt = 400(1.0075)^8 = $425.

  • consumer math - ,

    5. $10,000 @ 2%, Daily, 5yrs.

    Pt = Po(1+r)^n.

    r = (2%/365) / 100% = 0.00005479. = Daily % rate expressed as a decimal.

    n = 360 comp/yr * 5yrs = 1800 = The number of compounding periods.

    Pt = 10000(1.00005479)^1800 = $11,037.

    6. $10,000 @ 2%, Q, 5yrs.

    r = (2%/4) / 100% = 0.005.

    n = 4comp/yr * 5yrs = 20 comp. periods.

    Pt = 10000(1.005)^20 = $11,049.

    7. $10,000 @ 3%, Semi-ann, 10yrs.

    Pt = Po(1+r)^n.

    r = (3%/2) / 100% = 0.015 = Semi-annual
    % rate expressed as a decimal.

    n = 2comp/yr * 10yrs=20 Comp. periods.

    Pt = 10000(1.015)^20 = $13,469.

    8. Same procedure as 6.
