What will $1,130 amount to in 5 years at 5% interest?

We have to find the future value of a single sum
Using the compound interest formula
FV = PV (1+rate)^n where
PV = present value = $1,130
Rate = 5%
N = time period = 5 years
FV = amount in 5 years = 1,130 (1+5%)^5 = $1,442.20

What is the present value of $10,000 due in 11 years time at 5% compound interest?

Here we are given the future value and we have to find the present value
PV = FV/(1+rate)^n where
FV = future value = 10,000
Rate = 5%
N = time period = 11 years
PV = 10,000/(1+5%)^11 = $5,846.79
