Step 1

1 of 4The goal is to determine the starting principal if the accumulated balance is $\$120000$ for $15$ years with an annual percentage rate of $2.85\%$ compounded quarterly.

To determine the starting principal, apply this formula:

$P=\dfrac{A}{(1+\frac{APR}{n})^{nY}}$

where $P$ is the starting principal, $A$ is the accumulated balance, $APR$ is the annual percentage rate (as a decimal), $n$ is the number of compounding periods per year, and $Y$ is the number of years.
