Question: The First City Bank pays 7 percent interest compounded annually

a. Based on effective interest rates, in which bank would you prefer to deposit your money?
b. Assume that funds must be left on deposit during the entire compounding period to receive any interest. Could your choice of banks be influenced by the fact that you might want to withdraw your funds during the year as opposed to at the end of the year?
