Extract of sample

“FVn = PV (1+k) n FVn = Future value at the end of the year n PV = Present value, or original principal amount k = Annual rate of interest paid n = Number of periods” (Future Value Formula 1). A note to Pru-Johntower Life Insurance Company, promising an annual rate of interest of 10%; EAR = [1+10%] ^15-1 = [1.1] ^14 = 3.797 So, the effective annual rate = 3.797. FV = 10,000,000 [1+3.797] 15 = 719550000. A note to Tom Paine Mutual Life Insurance Company, promising a rate of interest of 9.72% per year, compounded monthly. EAR = [1+9.72%] ^15*12-1 = [1.0972] ^180-1 = [1.0972] ^179 = 16261. So, the effective annual rate =16261. FV = 10,000,000 [1+16261] 15*12 = 29271600000000. Above the problem shows comparing the effective annual rates and future required payment of the two notes. In the case of Pru-Johntower Life Insurance Company, EAR is 3.797 and FV is 719550000.
