P1 = Principal after 1st 3 years.

Po1 = $15,000 = Initial deposit @ beginning of the 1st 3 years.

r = (9%/2)/100% = 0.045 = Semi-annual %

rate expressed as a decimal.

n = 2Comp/yr * 3yrs = 6 Compounding

periods.

Solve the given Eq and get:

P1 = $19,533.90.

P2 = Po2(1+r)^n.

P2 = Principal amount after the 2nd 3 years.

Po2 = 19,533.90 + $40,000 = $59,533.90

= Initial deposit for 2nd 3 years.

Solve for P2.

Answer: P2 = $77,528.63.

NOTE: r,and n are the same for both P1 and P2 calculations.
