You have to use the formula for compound interest which is: A=P(1+r/n)^nt

The Givens info is:

A=?

P=1000

r= 6% = 0.06 (convert into decimal)

n=12(# of interest periods: since it is monthly n=12)

t=10

Now your formula should look like this:

A= 1000*(1+(0.06/12))^12*10

A=1000*(1.005)^120

A=1000*(1.819396734)

A=$1819.40
