Effective Annual Interest Rates (9% compounded quarterly)
First quarter Second quarter Third quarter Fourth quarter
Base amount + Interest (2.25%) $10,000 + $225

= New base amount + Interest (2.25%)

= $10,225 +$230.06

= New base amount + Interest (2.25%)

= $10,455.06 +$235.24

= New base amount + Interest (2.25 %) = Value after one year

= $10,690.30 + $240.53 = $10,930.83

Effective Annual Interest Rate

ia = (1 + r / M ) − 1
M
r = nominal interest rate per year ia = effective annual interest rate M = number of interest periods per year

Equivalence Analysis using Effective Interest Rate
Identify the compounding period (e.g., annually, quarterly, monthly Identify the payment period (e.g., annual, quarter, month, week, etc), etc) Find the effective interest rate that covers the payment period.

When Payment Periods and Compounding Periods Coincide
Step 1: Identify the number of compounding periods (M) per year Step 2: Compute the effective interest rate per payment period (i) i = r/M Step 3: Determine the total number of payment periods (N) N = M (number of years) Step 4: Use the appropriate interest formula using i and N above

Complex Cash Flows
Complex Cash Flows – Separate complex cash flows into component cash flows in order to use the standard formulas. Remember: You can only combine cash flows if they occur at the same point in time.

Problem 3
Anita Plass-Tuwurk, who owns an engineering consulting firm, bought an old house to use as her business office. She found that the ceiling was poorly insulated and that the heat loss could be cut significantly if 6 inches of foam insulation were installed. She estimated that with the insulation she could cut the heating bill by $40 per month and the air conditioning cost by $25 per month. Assuming that the summer season is 3 months (June, July, August) of the year and the winter season is another 3 months (December, January, and February) of the year, how much can she spend on insulation if she expects to keep the property for 5 years? Assume that neither heating nor air conditioning would be required during the fall and spring seasons. She is making this decision in April about whether to install the insulation in May. If the insulation is installed, it will be paid for at the end of May. Anita’s interest rate is 9%, compounded monthly.

Credit Card Debt
Annual fees Annual percentage rate Grace period Minimum payment Finance charge

Methods of Calculating Interest on Credit Card
Method Adjusted Balance Description The bank subtracts the amount of your payment from the beginning balance and charges you interest on the remainder. This method costs you the least. The bank charges you interest on the average of the amount you owe each day during the period. So the larger the payment you make, the lower the interest you pay. The bank does not subtract any payments you make from your previous balance. You pay interest on the total amount you owe at the beginning of the period. This method costs you the most. Interest You Owe Your beginning balance is $3,000. With the $1,000 payment, your new balance will be $2,000. You pay 1.5% on this new balance, which will be $30. Your beginning balance is $3,000. With your $1,000 payment at the 15th day, your balance will be reduced to $2,000. Therefore, your average balance will be (1.5%)($3,000+$2,000)/2=$37.50. Regardless of your payment size, the bank will charge 1.5% on your beginning balance $3,000: (1.5%)($3,000)=$45.

Which Option is Better?
Debt Financing: Pdebt = $2,000 + $372.55(P/A, 0.5%, 36) - $8,673.10(P/F, 0.5%, 36) = $6,998.47 Lease Financing: Please = $495 + $236.45 + $236.45(P/A, 0.5%, 35) + $300(P/F, 0.5%, 36) = $8,556.90

Summary
Financial institutions often quote interest rate based on an APR. In all financial analysis, we need to convert the APR into an appropriate effective interest rate based on a payment period. When payment period and interest period differ, calculate an effective interest rate that covers the payment period.
