  2. 23. 52,400 + 52,400*0.2*5 =
    24. 36,725 + 36,725*0.11*6 =
    25. 82,302 - 82302*05*4 =. I believe it should be 5% instead of 58%. Check textbook.
    26. Same procedure #25, but change 1yr. to 12 mo.
    27. P = Po(1+r)^n,
    Po = $5,000,
    r = 0.04/4 = 0.01 = quarterly % rate.
    n = 4 Comp./yr. * 10 yrs. = 40 Compounding periods.

  3. 28. P = Po(1+r)^n,
    Po = $1500,
    r = 0.085/12 = 0.0071 = Monthly % rate.
    n = 1comp./mo. * 36mo. = 36 Compounding periods.
