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.

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

amount = 1000(1.02)^8 = \$ 1171.66

Smacking my forehead!!! ~ Thank you, Reiny, so much for your help!! ~ Two more days and finals will be behind me and i can move on! :)
