Quiz 4.1.4 – More Money

Justin’s dad suggests putting the $500 into a CD that earns more interest, more often. Their credit union currently offers 2.5 percent APY on a 12-month CD, and interest is compounded daily.

Justin can increase his savings by compounding interest more often. What are at least two other ways he can grow his savings?
