Using the PV of an annuity formula with N = 10 payments and C = $100 with r = 4.067% per 6 month interval, since there is an 8% APR with monthly compounding: 8% / 12 = 0.6667% per month, or (1.006667)^6 – 1 = 4.067% per 6 months. 10 1 1 PV 100 1 $808.39 .04067 1.04067 = × =

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.
