Note: the abbreviations have the following meanings

PVIF= Present Value Interest Factor
FVIF= Future Value Interest Factor

They can be read from tables or calculated using the following equations
PVIF( n, r%)= =1/(1+r%)^n
FVIF( n, r%)= =(1+r%)^n

*Compound Interest - what amount will the following investments accumulate?

1) $5,000 invested for 10 yrs at 10% compounded annually

n= 10 years
r= 10.00% per annum
FVIF (10 periods, 10.% rate ) = 2.593742

Present value= $5,000
Therefore, future ...

Solution Summary

The solution calculates
1) the amount at a future date, given interest rates and the number of years
2) present value of a future amount using the process of discounting
