“Content Blurbs” As a ghost-writer for a new finance textbook, you are asked to create several “content  blurbs” that will be used on the books website to explain the time value of money. Hence,  you need to respond to the following questions: 1. What is the relationship between discounting and compounding?  2.  a. What will $5,000 invested for 10 years at 8 percent compounded annually grow  to?      b. How many years will it take $400 to grow to $1,671, if it is invested at 10 percent  compounded annually?      c. At what rate would $1,000 have to be invested to grow to $4,046 in 10 years? 3. Calculate the future sum of $1,000, given that it will be held in the bank for five  years and earn 10 percent compounded semiannually. 4. What is an annuity due? How does this differ from an ordinary annuity?
