1. What is the total amount accumulated after three years if someone invests $1,000 today with a

simple annual interest rate of 5 percent? With a compound annual interest rate of 5 percent?

A. $1,150, $1,103

B. $1,110, $1,158

C. $1,150, $1,158

D. $1,110, $1,103

Level of difficulty: Easy

Solution: C.

Simple interest rate: $1,000 + ($1,000)(5%)(3) = $1,150

Compound interest rate: $1,000(1.05)3 = $1,158

2. Which of the following has the largest future value if $1,000 is invested today?

A. Five years with a simple annual interest rate of 10 percent

B. 10 years with a simple annual interest rate of 8 percent

C. Eight years with a compound annual interest rate of 8 percent

D. Eight years with a compound annual interest rate of 7 percent

Level of difficulty: Easy

Solution: C.

A) $1,000 + ($1,000)(10%)(5) = $1,500

B) $1,000 + ($1,000)(8%)(10) = $1,800

C) $1,000(1.08)8 = $1,851

D) $1,000(1.07)8 = $1,718

Therefore, C is the largest.

Interest rates in the following questions are compound rates unless otherwise stated

Practice Problems

11. After a summer of travelling (and not working), a student finds himself $1,500 short for this

years tuition fees. His parents have agreed to loan him the money for three years at a simple

interest rate of 6 percent, with interest due at the end of each year.

A. How much interest will he owe his parents after one year?

B. How much will he owe, in total, after three years?

Topic: Simple Interest

Level of difficulty: Easy

Solution:

A. In one year you will own P x k = $1500 x 6% = $90 of interest.

B. After three years, the total (principal and interest) owing will be: P + (n x P x k) = $1500 +

(3 x $1500 x 6%) = $1770.

12. Your sister has been forced to borrow money to pay her tuition this year. If she makes annual

payments on the loan at year end for the next three years, and the loan is for $2,500 at a

simple interest rate of 6 percent, how much will she pay each year?

Topic: Simple Interest

Level of difficulty: Easy

Solution:

As the exact amount of interest owing each year will be paid, there is no compounding.

The amount of each annual payment will be P x k = $2500 x 6% = $150. Unfortunately, these

payments never reduce the principal owing, so the loan will never be paid off!

13. Khalils summer job has given him $1,200 more than he needs for tuition this year. The local

bank pays simple interest at a rate of 0.5 percent per month. How much interest will he earn

in one year?

Topic: Simple Interest

Level of difficulty: Easy

Solution:

Khalil will be paid interest each month for 12 months, but without compounding. The total

interest earned is (n x P x k) = (12 x $1200 x 0.5%) = $72.

14. A new Internet bank pays compound interest of 0.5 percent per month on deposits. How

much interest will Khalils summer savings of $1,200 earn in one year with this online bank

account?

Topic: Compound Interest

Level of difficulty: Easy

Solution:

The payment of compound interest means that we must compound (or find the future value)

of the amount invested (the present value):

FV12 months $1200 (1 0.005)12 $1274.01

Of this amount, $1,200 was the original amount invested, so $74.01 of interest will be

earned.

15. History tells us that a group of Dutch colonists purchased the island of Manhattan from the

Native American residents in 1626. Payment was made with wampum (likely glass beads and

trinkets), which had an estimated value of $24. Suppose the Dutch had invested this money

back home in Europe and earned an average return of 5 percent per year. How much would

this investment be worth today, 380 years later, using:

A. Simple interest?

B. Compound interest?

Topic: Simple and Compound Interest

22. Tony started a small business and was too busy to consider saving for retirement. Tony sold

the business for $550,000 when he was 55 years old. He thought he could fund his retirement,

because this was a lot more than his friend had amassed in his account. Tony can invest this

total sum and earn 10 percent per year. How much will his investment be worth in five years?

35. Janes parents used an RESP account to save for her post-secondary education. Based on the

amount accumulated (from your answer in Problem 340), Jane would like to withdraw the

same amount of money at the beginning of each year of her four-year degree program. All

funds (interest and principal) withdrawn from this account are taxed at a rate of 15 percent,

and the account will earn 6 percent per year on any remaining funds. How much will Jane

have available for tuition each year?

42. Jimmie is offered another loan of $29,000 that requires 60 monthly payments of $588.02 (see

Problem 38Error! Reference source not found.). What is the effective annual interest rate

on this loan? What would the quoted rate be?

Topic: Loan arrangements and Effective Annual Rates

Level of difficulty: Medium

Solution:

The 60 monthly payments form an annuity whose present value is $29,000. Finding the

interest rate is most easily done with a financial calculator (TI BAII Plus):

N=60, PMT=588.027, PV= -29,000, CPT I/Y = 0.6667%

Note that we used N=60 months, so the solution is a monthly interest rate, however, the

problem asks for the effective annual rate.

A. What is the effective monthly rate on this loan?

B. With monthly compounding, what is the nominal (annual) interest rate on this loan?

Topic: Determining Rates of Return and Effective Interest Rates

Level of difficulty: Medium

Solution:

A. There will be 5 x 12 = 60 monthly payments. The calculations are most easily done with a

financial calculator (TI BAII Plus),

Because we used monthly payments, and months as the time period, 1.0% is the effective

monthly rate.

B. The compounding period matches the payment frequency, so the nominal rate, or quoted

45. Compare the loans in problems 043 and 440. Which is the better deal, and why?

Topic: Effective Interest Rates

Level of difficulty: Medium

Solution:

The two loans have the same principal amount; one requires monthly payments, the other

annual, so they cannot be compared on that basis. We need an effective rate for the same

period of time for comparison. In Problem 43, the effective annual rate was 12%. For

Problem 44, the effective annual rate is:

k (1 kmonthly )12 1 (1 0.01)12 1 12.7% .

Clearly, the loan in Problem 43 is a better deal because the effective interest rate charged is

lower.

but unlike most Canadian mortgages, the compounding will occur monthly. Should

Josephine take out the mortgage loan from the Credit Union, or from Providence Bank (see

Even though the quoted rate is lower at the Credit Union than at the Bank (see Problem 470),

the effective rate is higher. Josephine should take the mortgage loan from the Bank in this

case. The monthly payment for the Credit Union mortgage would be $1,327.24, which, as

expected, is higher than that at the Bank.

the same interest rate for a second three-year term as she did originally, how much will her

monthly payments be now?

Solution:

If we assume that Josephine does not change the amortization period (now 17 years), then the

real-estate market has been quite active, so the house will almost certainly attract several

offers, and may sell for more than the asking price. Charlie is very eager to purchase this

house, but is concerned that he may not be able to afford it. He has $130,000 available for a

down payment, and can pay up to $1,950.00 per month on a mortgage loan. As a long-time

Veda would prefer Investment B, because it has the higher present value.

60. If the cost of each investment in Problem 59 0 is $1,000, should Veda invest in one of them,

or simply leave the money in the bank account? Would her decision change if the

investments cost $1,200 each?

Topic: Discounting and Determining Rates of Return

Level of difficulty: Difficult

Copyright 2008 John Wiley & Sons Canada, Ltd. Unauthorized copying, distribution, or transmission is strictly prohibited.

Solution:

Observe that the present value of the money returned by both investments, using the 5

percent discount rate, is greater than the $1,000 cost (see Problem 59). Therefore, they both

have a positive net present value. On this basis, either investment would be preferable to

the bank account (returning 5%); Investment B is more preferable.

If the cost of the investments was $1,200, neither would be acceptable, as the present

value of the money returned is less than the cost (they have a negative net present value).

61. Instead of a $40,000 lump sum, Felix will need $10,000 per year for four years to pay for

tuition (see Problem 30). How much will Felixs parents have to invest at the end of each

year for the eight years before he begins his studies if their savings earn compound interest at

7 percent per year? Assume the tuition payments also occur at the end of each year.

Topic: Ordinary Annuities

Level of difficulty: Difficult

Solution:

We have two separate annuities to consider: the tuition payments, and the savings amounts.

First, find the present value of the four annual tuition payments (at time 8, when Felix is due

to begin university studies):

1

1

(1 0.07)4

PV8 10,000 $33,872.11

0.07

This is the amount of savings required at time 8. From the perspective of time 0, this is a

future value amount (replaces the $40,000 in Problem 0.) Next, find the annual savings

amount:

(1 0.07) 8 1

$33,872.11 PMT PMT $3,301.44

0 .07

62. Repeat Problem 61 0assuming the tuition payments occur at the beginning of each year (the

savings are still invested at the end of each year).

Topic: Annuities Due

Level of difficulty: Difficult

Solution:

This problem can be solved in the same two step manner used in Problem 61. However, the

first step involves an annuity due, as the tuition payments occur at the start of each year:

63. Roger has his eye on a new car that will cost $20,000. He has $15,000 in his savings account,

earning interest at a rate of 0.5 percent per month.

A. How long (to the nearest month) will it be before he can buy the car?

B. How long will it be before Roger can buy the car if, in addition to his existing savings, he

can save $250 per month?

Topic: Determining Holding Periods

Level of difficulty: Difficult

Solution:

A. We know the future value and present value amounts, as well as the monthly interest rate.

Finding the number of time periods (months) is most easily done with a financial calculator

(TI BAII Plus),

PV = 15,000, FV = -20,000, I/Y = 0.5, CPT N = 57.68

It will take nearly 58 months, or close to 5 years before Roger can afford to buy the car!

B. Solving the following equation for n we get:

15,000 (1.005) n 1

20,000 250 .005 n= 14.86.

(1.005) n

Or using a financial calculator (TI BAII Plus),

I/Y=0.5, PV=15,000, FV= -20,000, PMT = 250, CPT n = 14.86

64. How many years will it take for an investment to double in value if the rate of return is 9

percent, and compounding occurs:

Copyright 2008 John Wiley & Sons Canada, Ltd. Unauthorized copying, distribution, or transmission is strictly prohibited.

A. annually?

B. quarterly?

Topic: Effective Interest Rates and Holding Periods

Level of difficulty: Difficult

Solution:

Lets assume the present value of the investment is $1. The future value, after doubling is

then $2.

A. Annually: With annual compounding, the effective rate is the same as the quoted rate, 9%.

Using a financial calculator (TI BAII Plus),

PV = 1, FV = 2, I/Y = 9, CPT N = 8.04

So the investment will double in just over 8 years.

B. Quarterly: With quarterly compounding, the effective annual rate is,

0.09 4

k (1 ) 1 9.308% , and a financial calculator allows us to find:

4

The higher effective rate means that only 7.79 years are needed to double the value of the

investment.

65. Assume Josephine chose the Providence Bank option (see Problem 47). The three-year term

on Josephines mortgage is now over, and she must renew the loan for another term. How

much of the original $180,000 principal amount does she still owe?

Topic: Mortgage Loans

Level of difficulty: Difficult

Solution:

The principal outstanding at any time is the present value of the remaining payments. After

three years, there are 17 years remaining of the original 20-year amortization period, or 17 x

12 = 204 monthly payments remaining. Based on Problem 47, the payment amount is

$1,322.69. Therefore:

1

PV3 years $1322.69 $165,172.38

0.005264

66. How much interest did Josephine pay over the three-year term of her mortgage loan (see

Problem 470)?

Topic: Mortgage Loans

Level of difficulty: Difficult

Solution:

Josephine has made 3 x 12 = 36 payments, of $1322.69. The total amount she has paid over

Copyright 2008 John Wiley & Sons Canada, Ltd. Unauthorized copying, distribution, or transmission is strictly prohibited.

the three years is therefore, 36 x $1,322.69 = $47,616.84.

Based on the solution to Problem 0, she has paid off ($180,000 $165,172.38) = $14,827.62

of the principal amount of the mortgage loan.

67. A year has passed since Charlie purchased his house (see Problem 500). Assume the original

mortgage amount (from your answer in Problem 500) was to be amortized over 25 years,

with an initial one-year term at 3.90 percent. If the interest rate on a one-year term has

increased to 5.35 percent, what will be Charlies new monthly mortgage payments?

Topic: Mortgage Loans

Level of difficulty: Difficult

Solution:

There are 24 years, or 24 x 12 = 288 months remaining on the mortgage. Using the effective

monthly interest rate from Problem 50, the outstanding principle amount is:

1

1 (1 0.003224) 288

PV1 year $1,950.00 $365,484.77

0.003224

2

0.0535 12

kmonthly 1 1 0.4409% .

Using this rate, and the outstanding principal, the new mortgage payment will be:

1

1 (1 0.004409) 288

$365,484.77 PMT PMT $2,243.31

0.004409

68. The new and higher mortgage payments calculated in Problem 670 creates a big problem for

Charlie, because he can afford to pay only $1,950.00 per month. Rather than sell the house,

Charlie has convinced his bank to extend the amortization period on the loan, which will

reduce the monthly payments. How long must the amortization period be for this mortgage

so that Charlie can afford to make the payments?

Topic: Mortgage Loans

Level of difficulty: Difficult

Solution:

Here we must solve the annuity equation to find the amortization period required:

1 (1 0.004409)n

$365,484.77 $1950.00 n?

0.004409

This can be done algebraically if you are familiar with the logarithm function:

$365,484.77 0.004409

n Ln1 1 Ln(1 0.004409) 397.98

$1950.00

An easier method is to use a financial calculator (TI BAII Plus),

I/Y=0.4409, PMT=1950, PV= -365,484.77, FV=0, CPT N= 397.98

We have used a monthly interest rate, so our solution is in terms of months, not years. Our

final answer is that Charlie must extend the amortization period to at least 398 months (or 33

years and 2 months) so that he can still afford the monthly payments.

69. Cline has just won a lottery. She will receive a payment of $6,000 each year for nine years.

As an alternative, she can choose an immediate payment of $50,000.

A. Which alternative should she pick if the interest rate is 5 percent?

B. What would the interest rate have to be for Cline to be indifferent about the two

alternatives0?

C. The lottery offers a third alternative for lottery prize payments: Cline can opt to receive

annual payments of $3,000 per year for the rest of her life. Should Cline choose this option

to the $50,000 lump sum payment today, if the interest rate is 5 percent per year?

Level of difficulty: Difficult

Solution:

A. The present value of the annual payments can be found with a financial calculator, (TI

BAII Plus), N=9, PMT = -6000, I/Y = 5.0, FV=0, CPT PV = 42,646.93

As this is less than $50,000, the immediate payment alternative is better.

B. This problem can be solved by trial and error, but the task is much easier with a financial

calculator, (TI BAII Plus), N=9, PMT = 6,000, PV = 50,000, FV=0, CPT I/Y = 1.5675%. At

an interest rate below 1.5675% per year, the nine-year annuity would be preferable; above the

rate the immediate payment is better.

PMT $3,000

PV0 $60,000 .

Clearly this is preferable to a $50,000 lump sum payment.

70. After 20 years, the lottery company in Problem 69 goes out of business, and Clines

payments of $3,000 annually, which were supposed to continue for the rest of her life, stop.

A. What is the present value of the lost payments?

B. How much were these lost payments worth 20 years ago when Cline won the prize?

C. Had she been able to predict that the lottery company would go out of business, should

Cline have chosen the perpetual payments, or the $50,000 lump sum?

Topic: Perpetuities and Discounting

Level of difficulty: Difficult

Solution:

A. Even after 20 years, the remaining payments form a perpetuity.

PMT $3,000

PV20 years $60,000

k 0.05

B. We must discount the figure from part (a) back 20 years:

$60,000

PV0 $22,613.37

(1 0.05)20

C. The value of 20 years of $3,000 payments (an annuity) can be easily found using a

financial calculator (TI BAII Plus), N=20, PMT = -3000, I/Y = 5.0, FV=0, CPT PV =

37,386.63.

In hindsight, the $50,000 lump-sum payment would have been preferable. The same result

could be found by subtracting the result in part B from that in A; this demonstrates that an

annuity can be thought of as the difference between two perpetuities!

71. Alysha has decided to use her $50,000 to make a down payment on a house. She will live in

the house for the next two years while still at university, and then sell it when she graduates.

The bank has offered her a mortgage rate of 5.1 percent compounded semi-annually on a

two-year term, with an amortization period of 25 years. The house she is interested in

purchasing costs $280,000.

A. If two friends will rent rooms from Alysha for $475 per room, payable at the end of each

month, how much additional money must she pay to meet her monthly mortgage payments?

B. In two years, Alysha wants to sell the house for a high enough price to cover the

remaining principal amount on the mortgage, and return her down payment. What is the

minimum sale price she should accept?

Topic: Mortgage Loans

Level of difficulty: Difficult

Solution:

A. The effective monthly interest rate is,

The amount of the mortgage loan will be ($280,000 $50,000) = $230,000, and there will be

12 x 25 = 300 monthly payments, the value of which can be found with a financial calculator,

(TI BAII Plus), N=300, PV = 230,000, I/Y = 0.4206, CPT PMT = 1350.89. Alyshas two

friends will be paying 2 x $475 = $950 in rent, so she will need an additional $1,350.81

$950 = $400.81 to make the mortgage payments.

B. In two years, Alysha will have made 24 payments, leaving 276. The present value of these

payments is the outstanding value of the mortgage loan. Using the calculator again, N=276,

I/Y = 0.4206, PMT = 1350.89, CPT PV = 220,336.58. To pay off the loan, and recoup her

down payment, Alysha would have to sell the house for at least $220,336.58 + $50,000 =

$270,336.58.

72. How much will Tommy have to earn on his savings (see Problem 520) to be able to amass $1

million in 15 years?

Topic: Investing Early

Level of difficulty: Difficult

Solution:

In the equation for Problem 52, set FV=$1,000,000, and solve for the interest rate. This is

easiest done with a financial calculator (TI BAII Plus),

N = 15, PV=0, FV = -1,000,000, PMT = 30,000, CPT I/Y = 10.603

It will take only a little higher return, 10.6%, for Tommy to reach his goal.

73. KashKow Inc. has just declared that its dividend next year will be $3 per share. That rate of

payment will continue for an additional four years, after which the dividends will fall back to

their usual $2 per share (see Problem 230). What is the present value of all the future

dividends?

Topic: Multiple Annuities

Level of difficulty: Difficult

Solution:

The dividends for the first five years form an ordinary annuity. Starting in year 6, the reduced

dividend stream can be thought of as a perpetuity. However, the value of this perpetuity, as

determined by our formula, occurs at year 5 (one year before the first $2 dividend), and must

be discounted to the present:

74. After one year living in a university residence, Mary-Beth (see Problem 24) decides to rent

an apartment for the remaining three years of her degree. She has found a nice location that

will cost $450 per month; rent for the first and last month must be paid up front. How much

money would Mary-Beth need to have in her bank account right now to be sure she will

always have enough for rent? The bank account pays 3.75 percent interest, compounded

monthly.

Topic: Annuities Due

Level of difficulty: Difficult

Solution:

Rent payments are typically made at the start of each month (so this is an annuity due). Over

three years, we would expect 36 monthly rent payments. However, the last months rent must

be paid up front, so the annuity includes only 35 payments; the present value of the last

months rent is $450 because it will be paid today.

75. Suppose that Mary-Beth plans to return home for four months each summer, and will sub-let

her apartment for the same amount she pays in rent (see Problem 740). In other words, she

will pay $450 rent, but for only eight months of the year, during each of three years. In this

situation, how much would she need to have in her bank account, earning 3.75 percent

compounded monthly? (Assume that rent payments are made at the start of each month.)

Topic: Annuities Due and Multiple Annuities

Level of difficulty: Difficult

Solution:

As in Problem 74, kmonthly 0.3125% .

Consider one year, or 8 months of rent payments made at the start of each month:

1

1 (1 0.003125) 8

PV0 $450 (1 0.003125) $3,560.99

0.003125

Mary-Beth will need to have this sum now, plus the same amount one year from now, and

again two years from now. In essence, this is a three-year annuity due, whose value must be

calculated using the effective annual interest rate.

76. A 65-year-old man intends to use his retirement funds to purchase an annuity from a life

insurance company. Given the amount of money the man has available to invest, the

insurance company is able to offer two alternatives. The first option is to receive $2,785 each

month for as long as he lives; the second option is to receive $3,500 each month, but for only

20 years (payments will be made to his estate if he should die before that time). The relevant

interest rate is 6 percent per year. How long must the man live so that the first option is a

better deal?

Topic: Ordinary Annuities and Multiple Annuities

Level of difficulty: Difficult

Solution:

It is tempting to view the first option as a perpetuity, but this would be incorrect as the man

will die at some time, and the payment will then cease. Thus, option one is an ordinary

annuity, with an uncertain number of payments. Option two is much easier to value; it

includes exactly 240 monthly payments.

0.06

kmonthly 0.5%

12

N = 240, PMT = 3500, I/Y = 0.5, FV=0, CPT PV = 488,532.70

For the first option to be a better deal, it must include enough payments so that its present

value is at least as great as for option two. Again using the calculator,

PV = 488,532.70, PMT = 2785, I/Y = 0.5, CPT N = 420.3

So option one must continue for 420.3 monthly payments to equal the value of option two, or

421 payments to surpass it. This is just over 35 years. Hence, the man must live to be at least

100 years old for option one to be a better deal!
