Problem 1

If interest rates are 8 percent, what is the future value of a $400 annuity payment over six years? Unless otherwise directed, assume annual compounding periods.

Periodic Deposit=R=$400

Number of periods=n=6

Rate of interest=i=8%

Future Value of ordinary annuity=FV=R/i*((1+i)^n-1)=400/8%*((1+8%)^6-1)=$ 2934.37

-Recalculate the future value at 6 percent interest and 9 percent interest.

If Rate of interest=i=6%

Future Value of ...
