SOLUTION:

From given data,

You invest $2600 in an account that pays an APR of 6%. Compound interest formula is given by A = P ( 1 + r / n)nt where, A -> Final amount P -> Principal r -> Rate of interest (decimal) n -> Number of times interest is compounded per year t -> Time in years (a) What is the value of the investment after three years if interest is compounded yearly A = P ( 1 + r / n)nt Here P = 2600 APR(Annual percentage rate ) is 6%. That is r = 6% = 6/100 = 0.06 interest is compound yearly Therefore n = 1 we have to find amount after 3 years, That is t = 3 A = 2600 ( 1 + 0.06 / 1)1*3 = 2600 * (1.06)3 = 3096.6416 1$ = 1 cent

That is , value of investment after 3 years is = $3096.6416 (b) What is the value of the investment after three years if interest is compounded monthly A = P ( 1 + r / n)nt Here P = 2600 APR(Annual percentage rate ) is 6%. That is r = 6% = 6/100 = 0.06 interest is compound monthly 1 year = 12 months Therefore n = 12 we have to find amount after 3 years, That is t = 3 A = 2600 ( 1 + 0.06 / 12)12*3 = 2600 * (1.005)36 = 3111.37 1$ = 1 cent
