A1 (Present and future value)
A.What is the future value of \$2,000 invested today if it earns 20% interest for one year? For two years? Rate 20% (1) -(2,000)= \$2,400 one year

Rate 20% (2) (-2,000)= \$2,880 two years

B.What is the present value of \$2,000 discounted at 20% if it is received in one year? In two years? Rate 20 % (1) (-2,000)= 1,666 discounted one year

Rate 20% (2) (-2000)= \$1,388 discounted two years

B4. (Present value) What is the present value of \$5,000 to be received in two equal installments of (\$2,500), four years and five years from today, when the annual discount rate is 10%? PV=FV/(1 r)ⁿ

=2500/(1+.10)4
=2500/1.14
=2500/1.4641
=1707.53

PV=FV/(1 r)ⁿ
=2500/(1+.10)5
=2500/1.15
=2500/1.61051
=1552.30
1707.53+1552.30=3259.84
