1 7.1 INTERPRETATION OF A RATE OF RETURN VALUE In rate of return problems you seek an unknown interest rate (i*) that satisfies the following: PW i* (+ cash flows) – PW i* ( - cash flows) = 0 This means that the interest rate – i*, is an unknown parameter and must be solved or approximated.

2 7.1 Unrecovered Investment Balance Consider the following loan You borrow \$1000 at 10% per year for 4 years You are to make 4 equal end of year payments to pay off this loan Your payments are: A=\$1000(A/P,10%,4) = \$315.47
3 7.1 Reconsider the following Assume you invest \$1000 over 4 years The investment generates \$315.47/year Draw the cash flow diagram 0 1 2 3 4 P=\$-1,000 A = +315.47

4 7.1 Investment Problem What interest rate equates the future positive cash flows to the initial investment? We can state: -\$1000= 315.47(P/A, i*,4) Where i* is the unknown interest rate that makes the PW(+) = PW(-)
5 7.1 Investment Problem \$1000= 315.47(P/A, i*,4) Solve the above for the i* rate (P/A,i*,4) = 1000/315.47 = 3.16987 Given n = 4 what value of i* yields a P/A factor value = 3.16987?

###### "Before using Course Hero my grade was at 78%. By the end of the semester my grade was at 90%. I could not have done it without all the class material I found."

### 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.
