Assignment 1 (due at the beginning of class on Friday, Feb 7th):
Remember: you will be expected to show your all work. (3 points for each
question)

1.

What is the present value of \$1,000 to be received 8 years from now? The interest rates
are 10%.

PV = = \$466.51
Financial Calculator:

2.

We bought a stock for \$45.85 four years ago and we can sell it for \$59.13 today. The
stock does not pay dividends. What annual rate of return have we earned?

59.13 = 45.85 (1 + i) 4
i = 6.57%
Financial Calculator:

3.

What is the accumulated sum if \$1,000 is deposited at the end of every year for 5 years
into an account compounded annually at 5%?

FVAN = PMT
FVA5 = \$1000 = \$5525.63
Financial Calculator:

4.

Now, work the problem 3 assuming an annuity due rather than an ordinary annuity

FVAN due = FVA5 (1 + i) = \$5,526 (1 + 5%) = \$5801.91
Since it is an annuity due, payments occur at the beginning of each
period, so we have to put the calculator in BEGIN MODE

5.

You buy a house for \$250,000. You put \$50,000 down, and get a 30-year fixed 6.5
percent loan for the rest. How much is your monthly payment?

PVAN = PMT

FV
5,801.91

\$200,000 = PMT

6.

PMT = \$1264.14

How long will it take to pay off a \$27,000 loan with a 14 percent APR which compounds
monthly? The payment is \$450 per month

PVAN = PMT
\$27,000 = \$450 by guessing or by using ln function to solve
N = 104 Months

APR = 14%, m = 12, so EAR = 14.93%
