#### Solution Preview

1

PV=$6000, i=8%, n=5

FV=PV*(1+i)^n=6000*(1+8%)^5=$8816

Correct option is C. $8820

2

Simple interest=PV*i*n=6000*8%*5=$2400

Total payment at the end of 5 years=6000+2400=$8400

Option B i.e. $8400 is correct

3.

FV=$10000, i=10%, n=3

PV=FV/(1+i)^3=10000/(1+10%)^3=$7513

Option A i.e. $7513 is correct

4.

PV=$3000, i=6%, n=3

S.I.=PV*i*n=3000*6%*3=$540

Option B i.e. $540 is correct

5.

PV=$3000, i=6%, n=3

FV=PV*(1+i)^n=3000*(1+6%)^3=$3573

Interest=FV-PV=3573-3000=$573

Option B i.e. $575 is ...
