Compounding a prescription for a small amount of prescribed medicine usually only occurs when it is a very specialized medication. There are several steps in compounding that include calculating the ingredients, gathering the proper ingredients, formulating the compound per the instructions of the doctor, labeling the medicine and making final preparations for the customer.

What is the interest on 1200 invested for 2 years in an account that earns 5 percent interest per year?

The answer, assuming compounding once per year and using generic monetary units (MUs), is MU123. In the first year, MU1,200 earning 5% generates MU60 of interest. The MU60 earned the first year is added to the original MU1,200, allowing us to earn interest on MU1,260 in the second year. MU1,260 earning 5% generates MU63. So, MU60 + MU63 is equal to MU123. The answers will be different assuming different compounding periods as follows: Compounding Period Two Years of Interest No compounding MU120.00 Yearly compounding MU123.00 Six-month compounding MU124.58 Quarterly compounding MU125.38 Monthly compounding MU125.93 Daily compounding MU126.20 Continuous compounding MU126.21
