Manually calculate the compound amount and compound interest for the following investments.

Principal Time Nominal Interest Compound Compound

Period (years) Rate (%) Compounded Amount Interest

__________________________________________________________________________

$10,000 1 4 quarterly _______ _________

To determine

To calculate: The compound amount and the compound interest for given investments with principal $10,000 is made for 1 year at 4% compounded quarterly.

Explanation

Given information:

An investment with principal $10,000 is made for 1 year at 4% compounded quarterly.

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

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

A=P×(1+i)n

Here, P is the principal, i is the rate per period and n is the compounding period.

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

Compound interest=Compound amountPrincipal

Calculation:

Consider the investment with principal $10,000 is made for 1 year at 4% compounded quarterly and solve as shown below:

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

Compounding periods(n)=Term of investments(years)×m=1×4(In quarterly compounding,m=4)=4

Calculate the interest rate per period as below:

Interest rate per period=Nominal rate
