r = 5.7%/100% = 0.057 = APR expressed as a decimal.

n 1comp/yr * 1yr = 1 compounding period.

Pt = 1(1.057)^1 = 1.057.

Bank B: Pt = Po(1+r)^n.

r = (5.6%/12) / 100% = 0.00467 = Monthly % rate expressed as a decimal.

n = 1comp/mo * 12mo = 12 Compounding

periods.

Pt = 1(1.00467)^12 = 1.058.

Bank C: Pt = Po(1+r)^n.

r = (5.65%/4) / 100% = 0.014125 = Quarterly % rate expressed as a decimal.

n = 4comp/yr * 1yr = 4 Compounding periods.

Pt = 1(1.014125)^4 = 1.058.
