P = 3000 r = 0.01 since the interest is annual but compounded quarterly n = 18 x 4 =72
so A = 3000(1+0.01)^72 will give the future value

oh okay so since its quarterly over 18 years you have to multiply the two. that makes sense! thanks
but where did you get the .01 from wouldn't it be .04?

- campbell_st

the interest is annual.... so to get the quarterly rate... divide the annual by 4...
