    t=10, so p(10)=430*1.009^10?

    Apply this formula: \[A= P\left(1 + \frac{r}{n}\right)^{nt}\] * A = final amount * P = principal amount (initial investment) * r = annual nominal interest rate (as a decimal, not in percentage) * n = number of times the interest is compounded per year * t = number of years

    No, you may've mistyped something into your calculator.

    Oh, for \(1+\frac{r}{n}\)? Not quite. You have to do \(1+\frac{0.06}{365}\) since the interest is compounded every day and there are \(365\) days in the year.
