Second One: A principal of $2500 is invested at $% interest. Find the amount after 20 years if the interest is compounded a. annually, b. semi-annually, c. quarterly, d. monthly, and e. daily

I understand how to do it annually, but I'm not sure about b-e. Thank you all for the help and I'm very grateful for it!
