Principal Time Period (years) Nominal Rate ( % ) InterestCompounded CompoundAmount CompoundInterest 28. $3,425 11 6.6 monthly To determine To calculate: The compound amount and the compound interest for an investment with principal$3,425 invested at 6.6% interest compounded semi-annually for 11 years.

Explanation

Given Information:

An investment with principal $3,425 invested at 6.6% interest compounded semi-annually for 11 years. Formula used: Compounding period can be defined as the duration or length of time from one interest payment to the next. If an investment made for 4 years at 6% compounded annually (once per year) then it would have four compounding period which can be calculated by formula given below: Compounding periods=Term of investments(years)×m Here, m is the period per year. The interest rate per period can be calculated by dividing the annual, or nominal, rate by the number of periods per year, Interest rate per period=Nominal ratePeriod per year Compound interest formula: Compound amount (A) can be calculated as, Compoundamount(A)=P(1+i)n Here, the principal (P), Interest rate per period (i) and the number of compounding periods (n) are known. Compound Interest: It can be calculated by subtracting the principal from compound amount. CompoundInterest=CompoundAmountPrincipal Steps for solving the compound interest formula: Step I: Add 1 to the interest rate per period i. Step II: raise to the nth power to the resultant step 1 by using the yx key on your calculator. Step III: Multiply the resultant of step 2 by the compound amount P. Calculation: Consider an investment with principal$3,425 invested at 6.6% interest compounded semi-annually for 11 years and solve as below:

Since, the variables-compound amount, time period (years), nominal rate and interest compounded are given; therefore, the compounding period can be calculated as below:

Substitute the values in the formula for interest rate per period and simplify,

Interest rate per period=Nominal ratePeriodperyear=6
