. How much is the note worth today if the interest rate is
a. 9%?
b. 12% compounded monthly?
c. 8% compounded quarterly?
d. 18% compounded monthly?
e. 7% compounded continuously?
SOLUTION:
PV = FV [PVF
k,n
]
a. PV = $10,000 [PVF
9,3
]
= $10,000 (.7722)
= $7,722
b. PV = $10,000 [PVF
1,36
]
= $10,000 (.6989)
= $6,989
c. PV = $10,000 [PVF
2,12
]
= $10,000 (.7885)
= $7,885
d. PV = $10,000 [PVF
1.5,36
]
= $10,000 (.5851)
= $5,851
e. FV = PV (e
kn
)
$10,000 = PV [e
.07(3)
]
$10,000 = PV [1.2337]
PV = $8,105.70

2. What will a deposit of $4,500 left in the bank be worth under the following conditions:
a. Left for nine years at 7% interest?
b. Left for six years at 10% compounded semiannually?
c. Left for five years at 8% compounded quarterly?
d. Left for 10 years at 12% compounded monthly?
SOLUTION:
FV = PV [FVF
k,n
)
a. FV = $4,500 [FVF
7,9
] = $4,500 (1.8385) = $8,273.25
b. FV = $4,500 [FVF
5,12
] = $4,500 (1.7959) = $8,081.55
c.
FV = $4,500 [FVF
2,20
] = $4,500 (1.4859) = $6,686.55
d.
FV = $4,500 [FVF
1,120
] = $4,500 (3.3004) = $14,851.80
