Saxon wants to take a trip to Ireland. She plans to deposit \$510 at the beginning of each quarter into an investment with a 2.95% interest rate, compounded quarterly. How much will she have in the account after 8 years?

What formula should I use here.

Parth (parthkohli):

To get the amount, formula is: $$\Large \color{Black}{\Rightarrow Principal(1 + {rate \over 100})^n }$$ n is the time (mostly in years).

Parth (parthkohli):

Can you do it or should I guide you further?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

Hold on I am solving. I wanna see if I can solv it on my own first

Parth (parthkohli):

Ok :)

Parth (parthkohli):

Also, notice that it is quarterly compounding, and 8 years = 32 quarters.

572.90 that is what I got

Parth (parthkohli):

$$\Large \color{Black}{\Rightarrow 510(1 + {2.95 \over 100})^{32} }$$ Did you use this formula?

Yes!
