Chapter 9

P1. Find the future value one year from now of a $7,000

investment at a 3 percent annual compound interest rate. Also

calculate the future value if the investment is made for two

years.

P2. Find the future value of $10,000 invested now after

five years if the annual interest rate is 8 percent.

What would be the future value if the interest rate is a simple

interest rate?

What would be the future value if the interest rate is a

compound interest rate?

P3. Determine the future values if $5,000 is invested in

each of the following situations:

5 percent for ten years.

7 percent for seven years.

9 percent for four years.

P4. You are planning to invest $2,500 today for three

years at a nominal interest rate of 9 percent with annual

compounding.

What would be the future value of your investment?

Now assume that inflation is expected to be 3 percent per year

over the same three-year period. What would be the

investment’s future value in terms of purchasing power?

What would be the investment’s future value in terms of

purchasing power if inflation occurs at a 9 percent annual

rate?
