The machine is worth 0 at this point. What is the rate of return of this investment? Timeline or I PV = \$355,000 I FV = \$400,000 I n = 4 I r = ? 8 FV n = PV 0 ! (1 + r ) n 400 = 355 !

Example: Solving for the Number of Periods n I You just met the girl of your dreams. I You currently have \$10,000 in your Engagement Ring Fund, which earns 12% per year. I The engagement ring you want costs \$20,000. I How long do you have to wait before you can pop the question? What info do we have? I PV = \$10,000 I FV = \$20,000 I n = ? I r = 12% FV n = PV 0 ! (1 + r ) n => 20,000 = 10,000*(1 + 0.12) n => 2 = (1.12) n " (1.12) n = 2 => ln(1.12) n = ln(2) => n *ln(1.12) = ln(2) => n = ln(2) ln(1.12) => n = 6.1163 Or in general: n = ln FV n PV 0 ( ) ln(1 + r ) 9

13 Compounding Frequencies I So far we assumed (implicitly) that compounding occurred once per period. I What happens if interest is compounded more frequently than once a year? I Example: (Note: this is not how banks state returns) A) Bank A offers an effective annual interest rate of r Yr = 12% B) Bank B offers an effective semi-annual rate of r semi = 6%

### 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.
