3. Calculating Present Values [LO2] For each of the following, compute the present

Present value refers to the current value of the money which is payable at some specified
future time.
It can be calculated by the formula
PV= FV[1/(1+i)n
PV is the present value
FV is the future value
I is interest rate
N is the number of years.

FV given as $15,451
i= 9%
n= 13yrs

FIN 370 WEEK 2


= $15,451x[1/(1+0.09)13
= $15,451 x 1/3.066
= $5,039.47

Hence here the PV = $5,039.47

FV given as $51,557
i is 7%
n is 4 years

= 51, 557 x [1/ (1+0.07)4]
= 51,557x [1/1.311]
= $39,326.47

Hence PV is calculated as $39,326.47

FV is given as $886,073
i is 24%
n is 29 years

= 886,073 x [1/ (1+0.24)29]
= 886,073 x [1/511.95}
= $1.73

Hence the PV is calculated as $1.73

FV is given as $550,164

FIN 370 WEEK 2

i is 35%
n is 40 years
= 550,164 x [1/(1+0.35)40]


=550,164 x [1/163,437.13]
Hence PV is given as calculated as $3.37
4. Calculating Interest Rates [LO3] Solve for the unknown interest rate in each of the

Interest rate is calculated using the formula:
Interest rate= (future value/present value) 1/years – 1

PV = $181
Years = 4 years
FV = $ 297


FIN 370 WEEK 2

Interest rate (i)

= (297/181)1/4 -1
= (1.6409)1/4 – 1
= 1.1318 – 1...
