1. 8.2% pa compounded quarterly is really 8.2/4 % per quarter, (because there are 4 quarters in a year)

16 months = 16*4 = 64 quarters.

------------

a. $7500 invested for 6 years at 6%/a, compounded monthly

6% per annum compounded monthly is really 0.5% = 0.005 per month

6*12=72 months

7500*1.005^72 = $10740.33

------------------

You can do the other 2 yourself.
