Present Value 2 Part I: Calculation of present value. A. Suppose your bank account will be worth \$7,000.00 in one year. The interest rate (discount rate) that the bank pays is 8%. What is the present value of your bank account today? What would the present value of the account be if the discount rate is only 3%? \$7000 = total value in 1 year \$7000 = total value in 1 year (8% or 0.80 x 1year) = 0.80 (3% or 0.30 x 1year) = 0.30 1+ (0.80) = 1.80 1+ (0.30) = 1.30 \$7000 / 1.80 = \$6481.48 \$7000 / 1.30 = \$6796.12 PV= \$6481.48 PV=\$6796.12 B. Suppose you have two bank accounts, one called Account A and another Account B. Account A will be worth \$4,000.00 in one year. Account B will be worth \$9,600.00 in two years. Both accounts earn 5% interest. What is the present value of each of these accounts? \$4000 = total value in 1 year \$9600 = total value in 1 year (5% or 0.50 x 1year) = 0.50 (5% or 0.50 x 1year) = 0.50 1+ (0.50) = 1.50 1+ (0.50) = 1.50 \$4000 / 1.50 = \$3809.52 \$9600 / 1.50 = \$8707.48 PV= \$3809.52 PV=\$8707.48 C.

What students are saying

• 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.
