Present Values How much do I have to invest today to have some amount in the future?
FV = PV(1 + r)t Rearrange to solve for PV = FV / (1 + r)t When we talk about discounting, we mean finding the present value of some future amount. Present Values – Example 1
Present Values – Example 1 You want to begin saving for future education and you estimate that you will need $150,000 in 17 years. If you feel confident that you can earn 8% per year, how much do you need to invest today?
N = 17 I/Y = 8 FV = 150,000 CPT PV = 40,540.34 (remember the sign convention) Present Values – Example 2
Present Values – Example 2 Your parents set up a trust fund for you 10 years ago that is now worth $19,671.51. If the fund earned 7% per year, how much did your parents invest?
