Question from cos:

how much would $2000 be at the end of 1 yr. at a daily compounded interest rate of 3% be? the 3% is not yearly but daily. thank you very much for your help!!


If the 3% is really the daily interest rate and the principle of $2000 is compounded daily for a year the accumulated value would be

$2000 x (1 + 0.03)365 = $96 965 449.06

If someone offers you this rate grab your wallet and run screaming from the room!
