approximately how much principal would need to be placed into an account earning 3.575% interest compounded quarterly so that it has an accumulated value of 68,000 at the end of 30 years ?

Principal = 68,000/((1+0.03575)^120)

               =68000/67.7

                = 1,004.43

in that case it means they havent factored in the quaterly rate. so it becomes....

 

68,000/((1+0.03575)^120)

               =68000/2.8684

                = 23,706.13
