  1. assuming you meant 2.14% and not really 214%,
    500(1 + .025*3) + 300(1 + .0214)^3
    Or, maybe you meant 2.4%, and not 214%. In that case,
    500(1 + .025*3) + 300(1 + .024)^3

    In any case, just use the formulas you have learned ...

  6. Does that mean that she will have a total of 577.50 by the end of the 3 years??
    My work: Account I; 500.00*.25*3=375.00
    Account II; 300.00*.225*3=202.5
    Then add the totals (375.00+202.50)=577.50
