Step 1

From the given,

P = 2000

n = 6

r = 4.2% = 0.042

Step 2

a) Compounded quarterly at 4.2% interest

Compound interest formula help_outlineImage Transcriptionclosent A = P| 1+- Where, P = initial amount r =rate of interest n= number of times compounded (For quarterly n=4 ) t = number of years fullscreen
Step 3

Then,

... help_outlineImage Transcriptionclose4x6 0.042 A = 2000| 1+ 4 = 2000x1.0105²4 = 2000x1.28490... A = 2569.81 fullscreen
