Steph21480 -- The $4,000 will be on deposit nine full years, making the calculation $4,000 * (1.09)^9. Paid as simple interest, as a bond -- with no compounding -- it would be $8687.57. However, if the interest compounds (as it would in most savings or money market accounts), the amount would be $9469.45.
