DISCRETE COMPOUNDING Suppose that money left on deposit earns interest at an annual rate r . This may be given as either a decimal, such as 0.0625, or as a percentage, such as 6.25%. Interest paid for an interval other than one year has the rate adjusted for time. For example, if the annual rate is 4.8% and interest is paid every month, then the monthly rate is 0.048/12 = 0.004, or 0.4%. The simple interest on P dollars after a time of t years, at an annual rate r , is P r t . Since the original money is still there, the value of the P dollars is P (1 + r t ). Interest is normally paid at regular intervals, while the money is on deposit. This is called compounding . Example 1 . We deposited $3,200 on April 1,1998 and left it in the bank for one and onehalf years at an annual rate of 5.45% , compounded quarterly (every three months). On July 1, 1998, interest made the deposit worth $3,200(1 + 0.0545/4) $3,243.50. On October 1, 1998, further interest made the deposit worth $3,200(1 + 0.0545/4)(1 + 0.0545/4) = $3,200(1 + 0.0545/4) 2 $3,287.79. Compound Interest. Discrete Compounding I T C t n n r P F ⋅ + ⋅ = 1 Interest, Discrete There are four more interest payments, that made the deposit worth $3,200(1 + 0.0545/4) 3 $3,332.59, $3,200(1 + 0.0545/4) 4 $3,378.00, $3,200(1 + 0.0545/4) 5 $3,424.02, and $3,200(1 + 0.0545/4) 6 $3,470.67 on January 1, 1999; April 1, 1999; July 1, 1999; and October 1, 1999; respectively. Note that, after 3/2 years, at 4 periods per year, the value of the money was $3,200(1 + 0.0545/4) 4(3/2) . Compound Interest. Discrete Compounding: page 2 (material continues) The more often interest is compounded during a given period, the more rapidly the investment grows. The sheet Frequency in the Excel file Comp. Int.xlsx shows the effect of frequency of compounding on the $3,200 that was discussed in Example 1 . Open that sheet and study its contents now. Comp. Int.xlsx $ I T P dollars invested at an annual rate r , compounded n times per year, has a value of F dollars after t years....
