FV W/ Cont. Compounding =PV*e^rt Where: PV= Present Value R= Rate T= Time (i) Annually FV= $ 1,000*e^(.45)(1) $ 1,046.00 (ii) 6 monthly FV= $ 1,000*e^(.45/2)(1*2) $1,046.00 (iii) Quarterly FV= $ 1,000*e^(.45/4)(1*4) $1,046.00 (iv) Monthly FV= $ 1,000*e^(.45/12)(1*12) $1,046.00 (v) Daily FV= $ 1,000*e^(.45/365)(1*365) $1,046.00 (vi) Hourly FV= $ 1,000*e^(.45/8760)(1*8760) $1,046 (c) Effective interest rate tries to determine the entire cost of borrowing. It accounts for the effect compounding interest which is excluded from the stated or nominal interest rate. For instance, a loan with 10% interest compounded monthly will actually have a rate greater than 10% since the rate is accumulated on monthly basis. Effective Rate, R=(1+I/N)^N Where: R- Effective Rate I= Stated Interest Rate N=Number of compounding periods per year (i) Annually The effective annual interest rate is similar to compounded rate since number of compounding period is one. (ii) 6 monthly R=(1+0.045/2)^2 1.0225% 2.2500% (iii) quarterly R=(1+0.045/4)^4 1.0341% 3.4100% (iv) Monthly R=(1+0.045/12)^12 1.0420% 4.2000% (v) Daily R=(1+0.045/365)^365 1.0459 4.5900% (vi) Hourly R=(1+0.045/8,760)^8,760 1.0460 4.6000% (d) R=e^n R=2.718^0.045 = 4.6000% Question 4 (a) F.V = P.V (((1+r))^n-1)/r) Where: FV – Future Value PV-Present Value R- Interest Rate N= Time taken 2,000= 1000(((1+2%)^n-1))/.02) 2,000=1,000(1.02)^n-1/.02 (1.02)^n-1=(2000/1000)*.02 (1.02)^n-1=0.04 (1.02)^n=0.04 Nlog 1.02=1.04 N=1.04/In1.02 N=1.04/0.0198 N=52.5 Years (b) 2,000= 1000(((1+5%)^n-1))/.05) 2,000=1,000(1.05)^n-1/.05 (1.05)^n-1=(2000/1000)*.05 (1.05)^n-1=0.1 (1.05)^n=0.1 Nlog 1.05=1.1 N=1.1/In1.05 N=1.1/0.0488 N=22.54 Years (c) 2,000= 1000(((1+7%)^n-1))/.07) 2,000=1,000(1.07)^n-1/.07 (1.07)^n-1=(2000/1000)*.057 (1.07)^n-1=0.14 (1.07)^n=0.14 Nlog 1.07=1.14 N=1.14/In1.07 N=1.14/0.0677 n-16.85 (d) i=2, i=5 and i=7.
