    (3000)(1.03)(1.03)(1.03) = (3000)(1.03)^3 = (3000)(1.092727)

    The "1.03" factors come into play because it is "1" plus "3%" because you have the principal plus the interest after each year. To get the answer, all you have to do is do that last multiplication. Don't worry, I checked, and the answer will be among the choices.
