### What is monthly compound interest and how do you find compound interest?

To find the final value of an investment use this compound interest
formula:
Investment Value = P x ( 1 + r/n )(Y x n)

P = Principal Value

r = Yearly Interest Rate in decimal form ( example: 5% in decimal form
is .05 )

Y = Life of the investment in years

n = how many times per year the interest is compounded. In this case, monthly or 12 times per year.

Example: An original investment of \$5,000 held for 3.5 years at an
interest rate of 5% would result in the following values.

If compounded monthly, the investment value would be:

Investment Value = \$5,000 x ( 1 + .05/1)(3.5 x 12)

Investment Value = \$5,954.07
