1. P = Po(1+r)^n

P = \$300,000

Po = Initial investment.

r = (8%/4)/100% = 0.02 = Quarterly % rate expressed as a decimal.

n = 4Comp/yr. * 3yrs. = 12 Compounding
periods.

P = Po*(1.02)^12 = 300,000
Po = 300,000/1.02^12 = \$236,547.95

2. Same procedure as #1.

3. Po = 125,000 - 5000 = \$120,000 =
Initial balance.

P = (Po*r*t)/(1-(1+r)^-t)

r = (8%/12)/100% = 0.006667 = Monthly %
rate.

t = 2yrs. * 12mo/yr. = 24 mo.

Plug the above values into the given Eq
and get:
P = \$130,254.60

Amount/mo. = P/t
