    Regular Compound Interest Formula \[A = P(1 + r \div n)^{nt} \] P = principal amount (the initial amount you borrow or deposit) r = annual rate of interest (as a decimal) t = number of years the amount is deposited or borrowed for. A = amount of money accumulated after n years, including interest. n = number of times the interest is compounded per year

    i've tried using that but wouldn't the FVAD formula work better? Anyways, i'm pretty sure its my numbers in rounding thats causing me to have the wrong answers. :(
