you used the concept of continuous compounding
but it said it was compounded monthly
Even with the above in consideration your expression of
8888(e^0.06(0.25))
makes absolutely no sense.

i = .06/12 = .005
n = 3(12) = 36 months

PV = 8888(1.005)^-36
= \$7427.21

For a single investment, there is one main formula:

Amount = PV (1+i)^n <------> PV = Amount (1+i)^-n
where i is the periodic rare, and n is the number of interest periods

for annuity you have

Amount = payment ( (1+i)^n - 1)/i
Present value = payment ( 1 - (1+i)^-n)/i

The vast majority of compound interest problems are handled with these 3 formulas.
Memorize them.
