E1. Go to the Federal Reserve Web site, http://www.federalreserve.gov . Go to “Economic Research and Data,” and access “Recent Statistical Releases” and the “Consumer Credit.” Find average interest rates charged by commercial banks on new automobile loans, personal loans, and credit card plans.

a.       Compare the average level of interest rates among the three types of loans.

b.      Access “Historical Data” and then “consumer Credit,” and compare trends in the cost of consumer credit provided by commercial banks over the past three years.

P2. 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 simple interest rate?

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

P3. Determine the future values if \$5,000 is invested in each of the following situations:

a.       5% for ten years

b.      7% for seven years

c.       9% for four years

P4. You are planning to invest \$2,500 today for three years at a nominal interest rate of 9 % with annual compounding.

a.       What would be the future value of your investment?

b.      Now assume that inflation is expected to be 35 per year over the same three-year period. What would be investment’s future value in terms of purchasing power?

c.       What would be the investment’s future value in terms of purchasing power if inflation occurs at a 9% annual rate?

P5. Find the present value of \$7000 to be received one year from now assuming a 3% annual discount interest rate. Also calculate the present value if the \$7,000 is received after two years.

P6. Determine the present values if \$5,000 is received in the furture (i.e., at the end of each indicated time period) in each of the following situations:

a.       5% for 10 years

b.      7% for 7 years

c.       9% for 4 years

P7. Determine the present value if \$15,000 is to be received at the end of 8 years and the discount rate is 9%. How would your answer change if you had to wait 6 years to receive the \$15,000?

P16. Use a financial calculator or computer software program to answer the following questions:

a.       What would be the future value of \$15,555 invested now if it earns interest at 14.5% for 7 years?

b.      What would be the future value of \$19,378 invested now if the money remains deposited for 8 years and annual interest rate is 18%?

P17. Use a financial calculator or computer software program to answer the following questions:

a.       What is the % value of \$359,000 that is to be received at the end of 23 years if the discount rate is 11%?

b.      How would your answer change in (a) if the \$359,000 is to be received at the end of 20 years?

P19.Use a financial calculator or computer software program to answer the following questions:

a.       What would be the future value of \$19,978 invested now if the money remains deposited for 8 years, the annual interest is 18%, and interest on the investment is compounded semiannually?

b.      How would your answer for (a) change if quarterly compounding were used?
