Solution:

F = P (1 + i)^n

a. The future value of $450 six years from now at 7 percent.

F = 450 * 1.07^6 = $ 675.33

b. The future value of $800 saved each year for 10 years at 8 percent.

each year saving, A = $800

F = A[(1+i)^n - 1]/i = 800 [1.08^10 -1]/ 0.08 = $11,589.25

c. The amount a person would have to deposit today (present value) at a 6 percent interest rate to have $1,000 five years

from now.

F = P(1+i)^n

1000 = P* 1.06^5

P = $747.26 (the present value)

d. The amount a person would have to deposit today to be able to take out $500 a year for 10 years from an account earning

8 percent

P(1+i)^n = A[(1+i)^n - 1]/i

P * 1.08^10 = 500 [1.08^10 -1]/0.08

P = $15,637.70 (amount to be deposited today)

F = P (1 + i)^n

a. The future value of $450 six years from now at 7 percent.

F = 450 * 1.07^6 = $ 675.33

b. The future value of $800 saved each year for 10 years at 8 percent.

each year saving, A = $800

F = A[(1+i)^n - 1]/i = 800 [1.08^10 -1]/ 0.08 = $11,589.25

c. The amount a person would have to deposit today (present value) at a 6 percent interest rate to have $1,000 five years

from now.

F = P(1+i)^n

1000 = P* 1.06^5

P = $747.26 (the present value)

d. The amount a person would have to deposit today to be able to take out $500 a year for 10 years from an account earning

8 percent

P(1+i)^n = A[(1+i)^n - 1]/i

P * 1.08^10 = 500 [1.08^10 -1]/0.08

P = $15,637.70 (amount to be deposited today)
