As an example, look at the partial table below (complete tables are included in the exam handout). Suppose that you wanted to find the present value of a 4-year annuity at an interest rate of 2.25 percent. Since the interest factor for 2% is 3.8077 and the interest factor for 3% is 3.7171, we would interpolate between the two to find the interest factor for 2.25% IF = 3.8077 - (3.8077 - 3.7171)*(.25) = 3.78505 This compares to an actual value of
