Solution to Problem Set 1 Q1. A K (0) = 16. So, a ( t ) = A K ( t ) /A K (0) = ( t 3 +2 t 2 +4 t ) / 16+1, and i 3 = [ A K (3) - A K (2)] /A K (2) = [73 - 40] / 40 = 0 . 825, or i 3 = [ a (3) - a (2)] /a (2) = (4 . 5625 - 2 . 5) / 2 . 5 = 0 . 825. Q2. Let i be the simple interest rate, then we have 1 , 200(1 + iT ) = 1 , 320, so iT = 0 . 1. Thus, A 100 ( T/ 2) = $100(1 + i · T/ 2) = $100(1 . 05) = $105 Q3. At t = 10 the accumulated value of Tom’s savings is 900(1 + %2) 2 (1 + %3) 3 (1 + %4) 5 = 1 , 244 . 86. Q4. First note that A K ( n ) = A K ( n - 1)(1 + i n ). Thus, A K (5) = A K (4)(1 + i 5 ) = 1 , 000(1 + 0 . 01 × 5) = 1 , 050; A K (6) = A K (5)(1 + i 6 ) = 1 , 050(1 + 0 . 01 × 6) = 1 , 113; A K (7) = A K (6)(1 + i 7 ) = 1 , 113(1 + 0 . 01 × 7) = 1 , 190 . 91 . Or, A K (7) = A K (4)(1 + i 5 )(1 + i 6 )(1 + i 7 ) = 1 , 000(1 + 0 . 05)(1 + 0 . 06)(1 + 0 . 07) = 1 , 190 . 91. Q5. The fact that $500 will accumulate to $566 in five years implies that 500(1+ i ) 5 = 566. Thus, v 5 = (1 + i ) - 5 = 500 / 566. The combined present value of three payments of 5,000 at time 10,15 and 20 is PV = 5 , 000 v 10 + 5 , 000 v 15 + 5 , 000 v 20 = 5 , 000 ( v 5 ) 2 + 5 , 000 ( v 5 ) 3 + 5 , 000 ( v 5 ) 4 10 , 393 . 804 Q6. There is a typo in the question. “one-half year” should be changed to “half year”. (a) X = 4 , 992(1 + 8%) 0 . 5 = 5 , 187 . 84 (b) X = 4 , 992(1 + (0 . 5)(8%)) = 5 , 191 . 68 (c) X = 4 , 992 1 1 - 8% 0 . 5 = 5 , 204 . 52 (d) X = 4 , 992 1 1 - (0 . 5)(8%) = 5 , 200 . 00 Q7. We need to find a minimum value of i (365) such that 1 + i (365) 365 365 1 + i (2) 2

    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.
