The simple interest earned is \$100*45*0.08 = \$360. Therefore the compound interest (interest on interest on interest) is \$3,092 - \$360 = \$2,732 Alternatively, we could have calculated the interest on interest as H I o I = \$3,192 - \$460 = \$2,732 4

iClicker Example: Compound Interest H Suppose you invest \$1000. The effective annual interest rate is 8%. At the beginning of year 5, you take all the money out of the account to buy a new TV. How much money can you spend? a) \$1,360.49 b) \$1,469.33 c) \$1,215.51 d) \$1,276.28 e) \$1,360.50 Answer: a) \$1,360.49 (note on rounding) Timeline: 0 1 2 3 4 5 Period -----|------|------|------|------|------|-------- \$1000 FV 4 = ? 5
Example: The Manhattan Purchase H Native Americans allegedly sold Manhattan to the British for \$24 in 1626. – Had they invested this money at an annual rate of return of 7.2%, what would the money have grown to in 1999? H What is n? 1999 -1626 = 373 H Then: FV 1999 = \$24*(1+0.072) 373 = \$4.4 trillion (12 0s) – According to Case (2000), the aggregate value of all residential real estate in the US was about \$11.6 trillion at the end of 1999 . – What would it have been worth at the end of 2009? H n = 2009 – 1626 = 383 H Then: FV 2009 = \$24*(1+0.072) 383 = 8.88 trillion – Note that the value doubled over 10 years. » Compound interest -> investments grow exponentially 6

Aside: The Rule of 72 H For interest rate between, say, 5%-20%, money doubles in approximately years In our last example, this would have been years. => For r = 7.2%, Rule of 72 works exactly. r 72 10 2 . 7 72 72 = = r 7
H Second Rule of Time Travel H In Finance, we often have to find today s value of (more or less certain) future cash flows. Said differently, we have to look for a present value. H From H We can easily get: n n r PV FV ) 1 ( * + = PV t = 0 = FV n (1 + r ) n = FV n * 1 (1 + r ) n = FV n * 1 1 + r ! " # \$ % n
