Use the formula FV = PV*(1+r/n)^(n*t) the variables are FV = future value PV = present value r = interest rate n = compounding frequency t = time in years You will plug in the following FV = 3000 is the amount you want PV = 100 is the amount you have r = 0.02 n = 12 t = unknown. You are solving for this
