  1. Are you sure it is not 6% annual compounded semi-annually ?

  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.
