5% interest rate for 10 years: (1.05)^10 x $100=$163 To compute a present value from a future value (how much you have to deposit in a bank to yield $200 in N years) you divide by the factor (1+r)^N Interst rate=5%, present value of $200 to be paid in 10 years= $200/ (1.05)^10=$123 If r is the interest rate, then an amount X is to be received in N years has a present value of X/1+r)^N Process of finding a present value of a future sum of money is called discounting The higher the interest rate, the more you can earn by depositing your money in a bank Concept of present value helps explain why investment—and thus the quantity of loanable funds demanded—declines when the interest rate rises $15 million for 14 years or $25 million for 6 years (paid each years)

    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.
