      Now, revisit the Contents view of the *Interest* folder and create
      a Script (Python) object with the id
      *calculateCompoundingInterest* that accepts four parameters:
      'principal', 'interest_rate', 'periods' and 'years'.  Provide it
      with the following "body"::

        Calculate compounding interest.
        i = interest_rate / periods
        n = periods * years
        return ((1 + i) ** n) * principal

         A minimal error in the header; 'i' missing.
