  1. The "nt" in your equation is an exponent and should be written ^nt, since we can only write numbers on a single line here. n is the number of interest-componding periods in a year (12), at t is the number of years (4).

    In your case, r/n = 9%/12 = .0075, and nt = 48

    Therefore A = 7500(1.0075)^48
    = 7500*1.4314053
    = 10,733.54
    I used a hand calculator to take the 48th power of 1.0075.
