(a) the interest is compounded annually?

(b) the interest is compounded monthly.

Expert's answer

PV = 10,000 euro, t = 3 years, r = 2.4%.

(a)If the interest is compounded annually, FV = PV*(1 + r)^t = 10,000*(1+0.024)^3 = 10,737.42 euro

(b)the interest is compounded monthly, FV= PV*(1 + r/12)^t = 10,000*(1+0.024/12)^36= 10,745.78 euro.

(a)If the interest is compounded annually, FV = PV*(1 + r)^t = 10,000*(1+0.024)^3 = 10,737.42 euro

(b)the interest is compounded monthly, FV= PV*(1 + r/12)^t = 10,000*(1+0.024/12)^36= 10,745.78 euro.
