1. To find out what your investment would be in 3 years, you must find the interest for year one and add it to the principle to find the interest for year two and so on. Which means your interest earns interest for you.
Principle x Rate=Interest

Year 1: 12,000 x .09 =1080
Year 2: 13,080 X .09 =1177.20
Year 3: 14,257 C .09 =1283.14

1080+ 1177.20+ 1283.14=3540.34

To find the Future Value add the interest plus your initial investment. 3540.34+ 12,000= \$15,540.34

3. interest=principle*rate*time
i=12000*.09*1
begin each year by adding both interest from end of last year plus new annuity payment= to principle
12000 end of first period
25080 end of second period
39337.2 end of third period
39337.2=future value
