1. Calculate the FV (Future Value) using the “Future Value or Compound Amount of $1.00” table in your textbook.

Reminder: To use Table 13-1, you need to calculate the Number of Periods and the Interest Rate per Period.

Calculate the FV (Future Value) using the formula: FV = P(1 + R)N

Reminder: Always show work. You can do this by stating the values that you are substituting into the formula.

How much interest was earned on the investment?

Use either the result from Part 2a or Part 2b, since they are slightly different for your calculation.

Annual rate of 6% is 1.5% per quarter. There are 16 quarters in 4 years.

Growth over 4 years is 1.015¹⁶=1.269 approx. Apply this to the CD=18000×1.269=$22,841.74.

Therefore the interest is $4,841.74.
