end of Years 0 through 3? The appropriate interest rate is 10%, compounded annually.

2.    Suppose that on January 1 you deposit \$100 in an account that pays a nominal (or quoted) interest rate of 11.33463%, with interest added (compounded) daily. How much will you have in your account on October 1, or 9 months later?
