About how much would be in your savings account in 7 years after depositing $275.00 today if the bank pays 4% annual interest?
FV = PV * ( 1 + i )^n
FV = 275 * ( 1 + .04)^7

You have $3,000.00 in an account that pays 3.2% annual interest. About how many additional dollars of interest would you earn over a two years period if you moved the money to an account earning 5.1%?
FV(1) = 3,000 * (1 + .032)^2
FV(1) = 3,195.072
FV(2) = 3,000 * (1 + .051)^2
FV(2) = 3,313.803
3,313.803 - 3,195.072 = 118.73
