    start again!: after 10 years amount = 25000(1 + (0.12)/4)^(10*4)

    this simplifies to 25000(1.03)^40 - you can compute that on your calculator

    the general formular is A = P(1 + N/r)^(Nn) where P = principal (starting amount), r = annual rate, N = number of times per year the interest is compounded, and n = number of years
