# Project #71982 - Business Math

Question 1: (10 Points)

Calculate the future value of an investment of \$1,000, after 6 months, earning 6% APR, compounded monthly, by compounding manually. 1,000x(1+0.06)^.5 = 1,029.56

Reminder: Be sure to show your work, and to calculate the period interest before solving.

Question 2: (10 Points)

Find the future value of a \$150,000 Certificate of Deposit that pays compounded interest every six months at the rate of 4% per year. The CD has a term of 5 years. 1+I

1.04040(150,000)=156,060

Calculate the FV (Future Value) using the “Future Value or Compound Amount of \$1.00” table in your textbook.

a)    Calculate the FV (Future Value) using the formula: FV = P(1 + R)N

\$156,000

b)    How much interest was earned on the investment?

Question 3: (10 Points)

\$6,000

You inherit \$200,000 and decide to invest it for 28 days compounded daily at 6% annual interest. After the 28 days, you are going to invest your new found money in a startup business.

a)    How much interest is earned on this investment?

5.11169(100%)=0.0511169

0.0511169(200,000)=10,223.38

\$10,223.38 was earned

b)    How much money will you have to invest in the startup after the 28 days?

\$200,000+10,223.38=\$210.223.38

Question 4: (10 Points)

How much money must be invested into an account paying 6% annually, compounded annually, to have \$500,000 in 25 years when I retire?

a)    Calculate the PV (Present Value) using the “Present Value of \$1.00” table in your textbook.

b)    Calculate the PV (Present Value) using the formula: PV = FV / (1 +R)N

c)    How much interest did you earn over the life of the investment?
