    FV two years
    Sum of FV's

    Find the future value of $10,000 invested now after five years if the annual interest rate is 8 percent.

    a. What would be the future value if the interest rate is a simple interest rate?

    FV using simple interest

    b. What would be the future value if the interest rate is a compound interest rate?

    FV using compound interest

    Find the present value of $7,000 to be received one year from now assuming a 3 percent annual discount interest rate. Also calculate the present value if the $7,000 is received after two years.

    PV received one year from now
    PV received two years from now

    Determine the present value now of an investment of $3,000 made one year from now and an additional $3,000 made two years from now if the annual discount rate is 4 percent.

    PV one year from now
    PV two years from now

    Use a financial calculator or computer software program to answer the following questions.

    a. What is the present value of $359,000 that is to be received at the end of twenty-three years, the discount rate is 11 percent, and semiannual discounting occurs?

    PV w/ semi-annual discounting

    b. How would your answer for (a) change if monthly discounting were used?

    PV w/ monthly discounting
