To get the accumulated value of an investment of $\textcolor{#c34632}{\10,000}$ for $\textcolor{#c34632}{10 \ \text{years}}$ years at an interest rate of $\textcolor{#c34632}{2\%}$ compounded quarterly, we will use this formula:

\begin{aligned} A = P \left ( 1 + \dfrac{APR}{n} \right )^{nY} \end{aligned}

where $A$ is the accumulated balance after $Y$ years, $P$ is the starting principal, $APR$ is the annual percentage rate in decimal form, $n$ is the compounding periods per year, and $Y$ is the time in years.
