  1. Po(1+r)^n = 100,000.
    r = 0.08/12 = 0.00666667 = monthly % rate.
    n = 1comp./mo * 120mo, = 120 compounding periods.

    Po(1.00666667)^120 = 100,000.
    Po = $45,052.33 = initial dep.

    Po(1+r)^10 = 100,000.
    Po(1.08)^10 = 100,000.
    Po = $46,319.35.

    46,319.35 - 45,052.33 = $1267.02. Less.
