Chapter 4. 4-35 Inputs: PV = 1000 I/YR = 10% N = 5 Formula: FV = PV(1+I)^N = Wizard (FV): Experiment by changing the input values to see how quickly the output values change. Years (D10): Interest Rate (D9) $- 0% 5% 20% 0 $0.00 $0.00 $0.00 1 $0.00 $0.00 $0.00 2 $0.00 $0.00 $0.00 3 $0.00 $0.00 $0.00 4 $0.00 $0.00 $0.00 5 $0.00 $0.00 $0.00 a. Find the FV of $1,000 invested to earn 10% annually 5 years from now. Answer this question by using a math formula and also by using the Excel function wizard. Note: When you use the wizard and fill in the menu items, the result is the formula you see on the formula line if you click on cell E12. Put the pointer on E12 and then click the function wizard (fx) to see the completed menu. Also, it is generally easiest to fill in the wizard menus by clicking on one of the menu slots to activate the cursor and then clicking on the cell where the item is given. Then, hit the tab key to move down to the next menu slot to continue filling out the dialog box. b. Now create a table that shows the FV at 0%, 5%, and 20% for 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 years. Then create a graph with years on the horizontal axis and FV on the vertical axis to display your results. Begin by typing in the row and column labels as shown below. We could fill in the table by inserting formulas in all the cells, but a better way is to use an Excel data table as described in 07model. We used the data table procedure. Note that the Row Input Cell is D9 and the Column Input Cell is D10, and we set Cell B32 equal to Cell E11. Then, we selected (highlighted) the range B32:E38, then clicked Data, Table, and filled in the menu items to complete the table. To create the graph, first select the range C33:E38. Then click the chart wizard. Then follow the menu. It is easy to make a chart, but a lot of detailed steps are involved to format it so that it's "pretty." Pretty charts are generally not necessary to get the picture, though. Note that as the last item in the chart menu you are asked if you want to put the chart on the worksheet or on a separate tab. This is a matter of taste.

    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.
