Calculating Monthly Interest Payment

This question is from a math textbook:

When Jason Levy was born, his grandparents deposited $3000 into a
special account for Jason's college education. The account earned
6.5% interest compounded daily. If, on becoming 18, Jason arranged
for the monthly interest to be sent to him, how much would he receive
each 30-day month?

In the text, the answer is $51.77 . How is this possible? What is
the proper method in solving this problem???
