Lab Project 08: Using Time Value of Money Functions in Excel
TVM-1:
Determine the amount that would accumulate for the following investment:
$10,050 invested at the start of a year, at 10% per annum, compounded annually for 6 years.
Solve using the Present and Future Value Tables found at the end of the textbook or those
separately provided by the instructor (see Moodle). Hint: This is a future value calculation.

TVM-2:
Determine the amount that would accumulate for the following investment:
$650 invested at the start of a year, at 12% per annum, compounded quarterly for 10 years.
Solve using the Present and Future Value Tables found at the end of the textbook or those
separately provided by the instructor (see Moodle). Hints: This is a future value calculation. Also,
because it involves quarterly compounding, divide the annual percent by 4 and multiply the
periods times 4 because the tables are designed for annual increments.

TVM-3:
Determine the amount that would accumulate for the following investment:
$5,000 invested at start of year, at 9% per annum, compounded annually for 4 years, and then
reinvested at 16% per annum, compounded semiannually for four more years.
Solve using the Present and Future Value Tables found at the end of the textbook or those
separately provided by the instructor (see Moodle). Hints: This is a future value calculation. Also,
it involves two steps. First calculate the future value of $5,000, compounded annually for 4 years
and then use that result to calculate the reinvestment. Also, because it involves semiannual
compounding, divide the annual percent by 2 and multiply the periods times 2, when calculating
the future value of the reinvestment, because the tables are designed for annual increments.

TVM-4:
Determine the amount that must be deposited now at compound interest to provide the desired sum:
Amount to be invested, at the start of a year, for 10 years at 6% per annum, compounded
semiannually, to equal $17,000, by the end of 10 years.
Solve using the Present and Future Value Tables found at the end of the textbook or those
separately provided by the instructor (see Moodle). Hint: This is a present value calculation. Also,
because it involves semiannual compounding, divide the annual percent by 2 and multiply the
periods times 2 because the tables are designed for annual increments.

TVM-6:
Determine which alternative will yield the better return:
Alston has $10,000 to invest. The first alternative, depositing the cash in his credit union account, will
yield 11% per year, compounded annually for 4 years. The second alternative is to deposit the $10,000 in a
bank that will pay 10% per year, compounded quarterly for four years. Which alternative should Alston
select?

TVM-7:
Determine which alternative will yield the better return at the end of 5 years:
First Alternative is that Beatrice invests $10,000 annually, at the beginning of the year, for each of 5 years,
at an annual interest rate of 8%, interest compounds annually. The Second Alternative is that Beatrice
invests $5,150 at the beginning of each of 10 consecutive 6-month periods, at an annual interest rate
of 8%, interest compounds semiannually.
Which alternative should Beatrice select?
Solve using the Present and Future Value Tables found at the end of the textbook or those
separately provided by the instructor (see Moodle). Hint: This is a future value calculation, using
the annuity due process.
