    Well, for compounding interest, we have the formula: \[ I = Pr^t \]Where \(I\) is the interest made, \(P\) is the principle (initial amount of money), \(r\) is the interest rate, and \(t\) is the number of times it's compounding. Thought this problem will require a bit more thinking.

    If you want the new ammount, it's just interest plug principle.\[ P+I = P(1+r)^t \]

    So John is making one investment which will generate 8% per year compounded monthly and his grandfather will start withdrawing $140 immediately upon the investment being made and each month after for the next 4 years?
