Use the formula for computing future value using compound interest to determine the value of an account at the end of 6 years if a principal amount of $2,500 is deposited in an account at an annual interest rate of 7% and the interest is compounded daily. (Assume there are 365 days in a year) The amount after 6 years will be $?

    Formula is: \[A = P(1 + \frac{r}{n})^{n.t}\] This is the formula for calculating amount in case of Compound Interest...

    Here, A = Amount (that we have to calculate) P = Principle Amount.. (P = 2500) r = Annual Rate of Interest (in Decimal) (r = 0.07) n = Number of Times the Interest is compounded per year..(n = 365) t = Amount of Money accumulated after n years, Including Interest.. (t = 6) Put these values in the formula given above and solve for A.. Can you do it??

    A=2500(1+(0.07/365)^365*6 A=2500(1+(0.07/365)^2190 A=2500(1.5219) A=3804.75
