CHAPTER 2 CLASS PROBLEMS 1. You want to borrow \$10,000. The interest rate is 15%. You plan to borrow the money for one year. What is the amount of interest you will have to pay one year from now? SOLUTION: SI = PV x i x N = \$10,000 x .15 x 1 = \$1500 2. How much will \$20,000 deposited in an investment account earning a compound annual interest rate of 15% be worth one year from today? SOLUTION: FV 1 = PV (1 + i) = \$20,000(1 + .15) = \$23,000 3.

FV 3 = \$1,000(1 + .06) 3 = \$1,191.02 b. FV 5 = \$1,000(1 + .06) 5 = \$1,338.23 c. FV 10 = \$1,000(1 + .06) 10 = \$1,790.85 4. If you require a 9% return on your investment, which would you prefer? a. \$5,000 today b. \$15,000 five years from today SOLUTION: a. PV of \$5,000 = \$5,000 b.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
