(a)

Here, P = 1000r = 0.08, and m = 1

Thus, i = r = 0.08 and n = 3, so

"A=P(1+r\/m)^n"

"=1000(1+0.08\/1)^3"

"=1000(1.08)^3"

=1259.71

or $1259.71. (B) Here, P = 1000r = 0.08, and m = 2 Thus, and n = (3)(2) = 6, so "A=P(1+r\/m)^n" "=1000(1+0.08\/2)^3" "=1000(1.04)^3"$1265.32.

(C)

Here, P = 1000r = 0.08, and m = 4.

Thus,  and n = (3)(4) = 12, so

"A=P(1+r\/m)^n"

=1000(1+0.08/4)^3

"=1000(1.02)^3"

\$1268.24.
