  1. You should have numbered your question.

    1. 7800(1.06)^2 = 8764.08 (you used simple interest for only one year for your answer.

    2. ok

    3. interest earned = 8500(1.0475)^2 - 8500
    = 826.68 (looks like your answer was obtained using "simple interest", which would be used only for short periods of time)

    4. 60/3000 = .02 = 2%
    so the montly interest rate is 2%
    (a monthly rate of 50% interest would be illegal in most civilized countries, don't you think??)

    5. 1000(1.03)^5 = 1159.27 YOU WERE RIGHT!
