    assume a balance of 100, what do you get for the balance at the end of the year when compounding?

    semiannually means 2 times a year the stated APR is for 1 year, so half it to the period rate

    125.94 is good; subtract the original 100

    or look at it this way: APY is simple interest 100(APY) = 125.95
