$16,105.10 if compounded yearly, $16,288.95 if compounded semi-annually, $16,386.16 if compounded quarterly, $16,453.09 if compounded monthly, and $16,486.08 if compounded daily.
At the end of the year the interest is deposited in the account. The next year the interest is figured on the principal plus last year's interest.
Yes. Currently it is 8.6% per annum compounded annually
Compound Interest and Your Return How interest is calculated can greatly affect your savings. The more often interest is compounded, or added to your account, the more you earn. This calculator demonstrates how compounding can affect your savings, and how interest on your interest really adds up!
No. If the account is earning interest the current amount should be greater than the initial deposit.

An interest-bearing checking account draws interest on the principal balance. Interest is money that accrues annually or semi-annually and accumulates in the interest-bearing account.
The question doesn't tell us the compounding interval ... i.e., how often theinterest is compounded. It does make a difference. Shorter intervals makethe account balance grow faster.We must assume that the interest is compounded annually ... once a year,at the end of the year.1,400 x (1.055)3 = 1,643.94 (rounded)at the end of the 3rd year.
Per annum compound interest formula: fv = pv(1+r)^t Where: fv = future value pv = present (initial) value r = interest rate t = time period Thus, fv = 1000*(1+0.07)^5 = 1000*1.4025517307 = $1402.55
That depends on whether you are getting 5% simple interest, or compound interest, and how often it is compounded. Simple interest is very easy to calculate; you just multiply. $500 at 5% earns 5% of $500 every year, which is $25, so in 20 years the interest earned is 20 x $25 or $500, for a total of $1,000. But if you put the money in a savings account in a bank, you get compound interest. It can be compounded annually, semi-annually, quarterly, monthly, or daily. The more often it is compounded, the more you earn. Nowadays you can get daily interest, but that is kind of complicated because it depends on whether you figure the interest for every single day, 365 days a year and 366 in a leap year, or the traditional banking custom of 360 days a year. For example, if you compound annually, every year your balance is multiplied by 1.05, so after 20 years you would have 500 x 1.0520, which is $1.326.65 to the nearest cent.
