Alice invests $8000 at Bob's bank. Bob compounds interest quarterly at a nominal rate of 6%. How much is Alice's investment worth after 7 years?

For this problem, I used the formula of A=P(1+r/n)nt to get to A=8000(1+0.06/4)4*7, which would give the answer of $12,137.77. Is this answer correct and, if not, how would I arrive at the answer?... more
