• Q: which of the following has a better rate of
return: $200 invested in 1 year with 6.25 paid in
interest or $500 invested for 1 year with $18
paid in interest
• Interest = present value (P) x interest rate (i)
Scenario a:

 i = 0.03125 = 3.125%
Scenario b:
18 = 500 i
 i = 0.036 = 3.6%
• Scenario b is better because it has better rate of return
