recall the compound interest formula.

$A = P \left( 1 + \frac rn \right)^{nt}$

Here $A$ is the amount after time $t$, $P$ is the principal (the original amount), $r$ is the interest rate (written as a decimal), $n$ is the number of times per unit time the principal is compounded, in this case, the number of times per year

Just plug in and solve for A. then subtract the original amount from it to find how much was earned
