P = Po(1+r)^n.

We can use any value for the Initial

deposit, but the for the time should be

for one year.

Po = $1.00.

r = (5%/4)/100% = 0.0125 = Quarterly %

rate expressed as a decimal.

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

P = (1.00(1.0125)^4 = $1.0509.

APY = ((P-Po)/Po) * !00%.

APY=((1.0509-1.00)/1.00) * 100%=5.09%.
