EXAM 2/FM SAMPLE QUESTIONS SOLUTIONS 11/03/04 2 The following model solutions are presented for educational purposes. Alternate methods of solution are, of course, acceptable. 1. Solution: C Given the same principal invested for the same period of time yields the same accumulated value, the two measures of interest i (2) and δ must be equivalent, which means: δ e i = + 2 ) 2 ( ) 2 1 ( over one interest measurement period (a year in this case). Thus, e = + 2 ) 2 04 . 1 ( or e = + 2 ) 02 . 1 ( and 0396 . ) 02 . 1 ln( 2 ) 02 . 1 ln( 2 = = = or 3.96%. ---------------------------- 2. Solution: E Accumulated value end of 40 years = 100 [(1+i) 4 + (1+i) 8 + ……. .(1+i) 40 ]= 100 ((1+i) 4 )[1-((1+i) 4 ) 10 ]/[1 - (1+i) 4 ] (“Sum of finite geometric progression = 1 st term times [1 – (common ratio) raised to the number of terms] divided by [1 –common ratio]”) and accumulated value end of 20 years = 100 [(1+i) 4 + (1+i) 8 + ……. .(1+i) 20 ]=100 ((1+i) 4 )[1-((1+i) 4 ) 5 ]/[1 - (1+i) 4 ] But accumulated value end of 40 years = 5 times accumulated value end of 20 years Thus, 100 ((1+i) 4 )[1-((1+i) 4 ) 10 ]/[1 - (1+i) 4 ] = 5 {100 ((1+i) 4 )[1-((1+i) 4 ) 5 ]/[1 - (1+i) 4 ]} Or, for i > 0, 1-((1+i) 40 = 5 [1-((1+i) 20 ] or [1-((1+i) 40 ]/[1-((1+i) 20 ] = 5 But x 2 - y 2 = [x-y] [x+y], so [1-((1+i) 40 ]/[1-((1+i) 20 ]= [1+((1+i) 20 ] Thus, [1+((1+i) 20 ] = 5 or (1+i) 20 = 4. So X = Accumulated value at end of 40 years = 100 ((1+i) 4 )[1-((1+i) 4 ) 10 ]/[1 - (1+i) 4 ] =100 (4 1/5 )[1-((4 1/5 ) 10 ]/[1 – 4 1/5 ] = 6194.72 Alternate solution using annuity symbols : End of year 40, accumulated value = ) / ( 100 | 4 | 40 a s , and end of year 20 accumulated value = ) / ( 100 | 4 | 20 a s . Given the ratio of the values equals 5, then 5 = ] 1 ) 1 [( ] 1 ) 1 /[( ] 1 ) 1 [( ) / ( 20 20 40 | 20 | 40 + + = + + = i i i s s . Thus, (1+i) 20 = 4 and the accumulated value at the end of 40 years is 72 . 6194 ] 4 1 /[ ] 1 16 [ 100 ] ) 1 ( 1 /[ ] 1 ) 1 [( 100 ) / ( 100 5 / 1 4 40 | 4 | 40 = = + + = i i a s

EXAM 2/FM SAMPLE QUESTIONS SOLUTIONS 11/03/04 3 Note : if i = 0 the conditions of the question are not satisfied because then the accumulated value at the end of 40 years = 40 (100) = 4000, and the accumulated value at the end of 20 years = 20 (100) = 2000 and thus accumulated value at the end of 40 years is not 5 times the accumulated value at the end of 20 years.

EXAM 2/FM SAMPLE QUESTIONS SOLUTIONS 11/03/04 4 3. Solution: C Eric’s interest (compound interest), last 6 months of the 8 th year: ) 2 ( ) 2 1 ( 100 15 i i + Mike’s interest (simple interest), last 6 months of the 8 th year: ) 2 ( 200 i . Thus, ) 2 ( 200 ) 2 ( ) 2 1 ( 100 15 i i i = + or 2 ) 2 1 ( 15 = + i , which means i/2 = .047294 or i = .094588 = 9.46% ------------------------------ 4. Solution: A The payment using the amortization method is 1627.45. The periodic interest is .10(10000) = 1000. Thus, deposits into the sinking fund are 1627.45-1000 = 627.45 Then, the amount in sinking fund at end of 10 years is 627.45 14 . | 10 s Using BA II Plus calculator keystrokes: 2 nd FV (to clear registers) 10 N, 14 I/Y, 627.45 PMT, CPT FV +/- - 10000= yields 2133.18 (Using BA 35 Solar keystrokes are AC/ON (to clear registers) 10 N 14 %i 627.45 PMT CPT FV +/- – 10000 =) ------------------------------- 5. Solution: E Key formulas for estimating dollar-weighted rate of return: Fund January 1 + deposits during year – withdrawals during year + interest = Fund December 31.
