1000 is left in a bank account for five years. If it receives a (nominal) annual interest rate of 4% a year compounded semi-annually, how much will be in the account at the end of five years?

Thanks again!!!

1000 * (1 + annual interest / compound frequency) ^ (number of intervals)

= 1000 * ( 1 + 4%/2) ^ 10

= 1000 * (1 + 2%)^10

= 1219

= 1000*(1 + 4%/2)^10
= 1000*(1.02)^10
