A1. (PV and FV of single payments) Fill in the missing information:
a.
PV=FV/(1+r)^n=20/(1+10%)^10=7.71

b.
FV=PV*(1+r)^n=10*(1+10%)^10=25.94

c.
r=(FV/PV)^(1/n)-1=(20/10)^(1/10)-1=7.18%

d.

FV=PV*(1+r)^n
20=10*(1+10%)^n
2=(1.1)^n
Taking Ln both sides
Ln2=nLn(1.1)
n=Ln(2)/Ln(1.1)=7.27

A2. (PV and ...
