Work Step by Step

RECALL: The formula for the future value $A$ is: $A=P(1+rt)$ where P=principal amount borrowed r = interest rate per year t = time in years Use the formula above to obtain: $A=\$9000(1+6.5\%\cdot \frac{8}{12}) \\A=\$9000(1+0.065\cdot \frac{2}{3}) \\A=\$9000(1+0.04\overline{3}) \\A=\$9000(1.04\overline{3}) \\A=\$9,387.97$
