2. No Idea, the question completely asks that. I was thinking about 12% annually compounded, but the answer I got was wrong due to Solve and Check.

3. 15 years is 30 periods each 3% or multiply by 1.03 every six months

9000 = d * 1.03^30
9000 = 2.427262471 d
d = \$ 3,707.88

4. 12% is way high and no one expresses compounding annually with semi annual interest rate. Typo in your book I suspect.
