I just received my 401(k) statement today, and I am trying to analyze my returns.I know the following three things:1) The beginning balance.2) The amount of contributions (which were made in 12 equal chunks over 6 months).3) The total gains.Can anyone suggest how I might figure the yield. The simplest thing that I could think of was take (start + contributions/2 + gains)/(start + contributions/2). But this feels a little too linear to me.It's kind of embarrassing to be a math major and not know this. I can take triple integrals, but I can't figure out simple questions of compound interest.Thanks for your help.-gm
