jesshujia could anyone tell me how to get that result?
noonah jess, compounded monthly means interest rate is 6pct/12=0.5pct. Three years=3*12=36months. Plug all no's into equation.
Shelton 1000 * (1+0.06/12)^36 = 1196.68 (C)
toxoplasmosis I got the result using the formula but got a different one with the BA II plus.Is my calculator having prob.?
bsm9 Yes, my BA 11 plus gave something completely different when I did the following:
n=3
i/y=6%
PV=-1000
PMT=0
P/Y=12
C/Y=12

mpasternack Make sure you clear TVM in your calculator if you are getting the wrong answer when solving for TVM questions (2nd, CLR TVM for BA II Plus)
jrojasut09 @bsm: make sure you're converting the interest rate from nominal to effective. The effective rate of 6% compounded monthly is 6.1678.

I/y=6%/12
N=36
Pv=-1000
