Maturity amount calculation for fixed deposit

Maturity amount calculation for fixed deposit where interest is compounded quarterly:

Maturity amount = Principal * ( 1 + (Rate of interest)/4 ) ^ (Period * 4)

For example, deposit of Rs. 1,00,000 deposited for a 5 year period, at 9% per annum interest compounded quarterly, yields on maturity an amount of:

Rs. 1,00,000 * (1 + 0.09/ 4) ^ (5 * 4) = Rs. 1,56,050.92
