I need to determine the amount of an investment if $1000 is invested at an interest rate of 8% compounded quarterly for 2 years. - Not quite sure how to go about this and would appreciate help. Thank you in advance.

  • Math, please! -

    8% compounded quarterly ---> quarterly rate of 2% or .02
    number of quarters in 2 years = 8

    amount = 1000(1.02)^8 = $ 1171.66
