    do you have a financial calculator? if so just plug in N = 12 I = 2.64/2 PV = 0 PMT = 2500 compute FV

    oh wait sorry that is not right first find effective annual growth rate \[(1 + \frac{.0264}{2})^2 - 1\] set this as I N = 6 PV =0 PMT = 2500

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Future_value#Compound_interest \[FV = 2500* \frac{(1+r)^n - 1}{r}\] n = 6 r = .02657424
