  1. What you probably did was calculated simple interest for 15 years on $1000 and added to $2200 to give $2650.

    Compound interest formula are based on the number of periods, n, the interest was compounded.

    The interest being compounded 4 times a year, so there are 15*4=60 periods of 3 months each. The corresponding interest rate for each period is therefore r = 3%/4=0.0075.

    The formula for the future value using compound interest is:
    FV = Principal * (1+r)^n
