Chapter 5 - The Time Value of Money The Time Value of Money Compounding and Discounting Single Sums We know that receiving $1 today is worth more than $1 in the future. This is due to opportunity costs . The opportunity cost of receiving $1 in the future is the interest we could have earned if we had received the $1 sooner. If we can measure this opportunity cost, we can: Translate $1 today into its equivalent in the future (compounding). Translate $1 in the future into its equivalent today (discounting). Compound Interest and Future Value Future Value - single sums If you deposit $100 in an account earning 6%, how much would you have in the account after 1 year? Calculator Solution: P/Y = 1 I = 6 N = 1 PV = -100 FV = $106 Mathematical Solution: FV = PV (FVIF i, n ) FV = 100 (FVIF .06, 1 ) (use FVIF table, or) FV = PV (1 + i) n FV = 100 (1.06) 1 = $106 Future Value - single sums If you deposit $100 in an account earning 6%, how much would you have in the account after 5 years? Calculator Solution: P/Y = 1 I = 6 N = 5 PV = -100 FV = $133.82 Future Value - single sums If you deposit $100 in an account earning 6%, how much would you have in the account after 5 years? Calculator Solution: P/Y = 1 I = 6 N = 5 PV = -100 FV = $133.82 Future Value - single sums If you deposit $100 in an account earning 6%, how much would you have in the account after 5 years? Mathematical Solution: FV = PV (FVIF i, n ) FV = 100 (FVIF .06, 5 ) (use FVIF table, or) FV = PV (1 + i) n FV = 100 (1.06) 5 = $133.82
