    In our school we all must have had come across this formula: Amount = Principal (1+Rate of Interest/100) ^ Time Now, here the interest is getting compounded semi-annually, hence, the number of time periods would double and the rate of interest would be divided by two. So, it shall be put as $8,000*(1+0.04)^16 So, Shelly will have to repay Anne $14983.85 at the end of eighth year.
