Name: Tosha Collins Course Number: BU100 Section Number: 11AU Unit Number: 8 Barry and Steve are good friends. Barry wants to buy a new computer, but he doesn't have the money for it right now. Barry says that he will pay Steve \$2,000 in five years if Steve gives him \$1,600 for the computer today. Steve figures that there's an interest rate of 6% if he were to put the money in a bank instead of lending it to Barry. Assuming that there is no risk of Barry not paying the \$2,000 when he says he will, should Steve go through with the loan or should he put his money in the bank? Explain your answer. FV= P (1+r) to the T power. P= Principal 1600.00 r= Interest 6% T= Number of time periods that interest will be compounded.

His interest would total \$669.61. I would NOT lend to Barry. Steven will only gain \$400.00 if he loans to Barry, with the assumption that Barry will pay him back and pay the interest promised. If Steven puts his money in the bank, he will make an additional \$269.61 guaranteed payable by the bank....
