What is the future value in one year? Interest = 1000(.05) = 50 Value in one year = principal + interest = 1000 + 50 = 1050 Future Value (FV) = 1000(1 + .05) = 1050 Suppose you leave the money in for another year. How much will you have two years from now? FV = 1050 (1.05) = 1102.50 ie 1000(1.05)(1.05) = 1000(1.05) 2 = 1102.50 5-4 E FFECTS OF C OMPOUNDING Simple interest assumes that interest rate paid is a flat percentage of the principal (P) each period Compound interest interest is earned/paid on the principal plus any accumulated interest determined since the start of the deposit/loan. Consider the previous example FV with simple interest = 1000 + 50 + 50 = 1100 FV with compound interest = 1102.50 The extra 2.50 comes from the interest of .05(50) = 2.50 earned on the first interest payment 5-5 F UTURE V ALUES E XAMPLE 2 Suppose you invest the $1000 from the previous example for 5 years. How much would you have? FV = 1000(1.05) 5 = 1276.28 The effect of compounding is small for a small number of periods, but increases as the number of periods increases. (Simple interest would have a future value of $1250, for a difference of $26.28.) 5-6 F UTURE V ALUES E XAMPLE 3 Suppose you had a relative deposit $10 at 5.5% interest 200 years ago. How much would the investment be worth today? FV = 10(1.055) 200 = 447,189.84 What is the effect of compounding? Simple interest = 10 + 200(10)(.055) = 120.00 Compounding added $447,069.84 to the value of the investment 5-7 P RESENT V ALUES How much do I have to invest today to have some amount in the future? FV = PV(1 + r) t Rearrange to solve for PV = FV / (1 + r) t When we talk about discounting, we mean finding the present value of some future amount....
