Starting with $10,000, how much will you have in 10 years if you can earn 15 % on your money? If you can earn only 8%? At the end of 10 years, your $10,000 investment would grow to $40,460 at 15%, but only $21,590 at 8% (about half as much). FV = PV x FV factor 15%,10 yrs. 10000 +/- PV = $10,000 x 4.406 15 I = $40,460 10 N FV $40,455.58 FV = PV x FV factor 8%,10yrs. 10000 +/- PV = $10,000 x 2.159 8 I = $21,590 10 N FV $21,589.25 B : If you inherited $25,000 today and invested all of it in a security that paid a 10% rate of return, how much would you have in 25 years?

At the end of 10 years the average new home, which costs $125,000 today, will cost $203,625 if prices go up at 5% per year.
