Textbook Problem

Using Table 11-1, calculate the compound amount and compound interest for the following investment.

Principal Time Nominal Interest Compound Compound

Period (years) Rate (%) Compounded Amount Interest

____________________________________________________________________________

$400 2 6 monthly __________ __________

To determine

**To calculate:** The compound amount and the compound interest for the investment with principal

Explanation

**Given information:**

An investment with principal

**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

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,

The compound amount (Future value) can be calculated by the formula given below:

In table 11-1, the table factor is the intersection of the rate-per-period column and the number-of-periods row is the future value of

The compound interest can be calculated by the formula given below:

**Calculation:**

Consider the investment with principal

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