Present Value 2 Part I: Calculation of present value. A. Suppose your bank account will be worth $15,000.00 in one year. The interest rate (discount rate) that the bank pays is 7%. 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 4%? $15000 = total value in 1 year $15000 = total value in 1 year (7% or 0.07 x 1year) = 0.07 (4% or 0.04 x 1year) = 0.04 1+ (0.07) = 1.07 1+ (0.04) = 1.04 $15000 / 1.07 = $14,018.69 $15000 / 1.04 = $14,423.08 PV= $14018.69 PV=$14,423.08 B. Suppose you have two bank accounts, one called Account A and another Account B. Account A will be worth $6500.00 in one year. Account B will be worth $12,600.00 in two years. Both accounts earn 6% interest. What is the present value of each of these accounts? $6500 = total value in 1 year
