- If you invest $10,000 today, and do not add any more , calculate future values for ( Grade: points : 20 % of this problem)
- r = 1%; for 5 years and 10 years
- r = 2%; for 5 years and 10 years
- r = 3%; for 5 years and 10 years
|1. Calculate Future Value ( FV)|
|Amount to be deposited (PV)||-10,000|
|growth rates : r||term (n) , years||term (n) , years|
- If you put $10,000 (ten thousand) today, plus add $ 1000 (one thousand dollars) every year , calculate future value (FV) in 20 (Twenty years)
- r = 1%; for 20 years
- r = 2%; for 20 years
- r = 3%; for 20 years
|2. Calculate FV|
|Current value (PV)||-10,000|
|Interest rates : r||term (n) , years|
- If Julie has $500,000 (Half million) in her retirement account. If she invests in a conservative investment that will provide a return of 3.5 % a year, and if she wants her money to last 30 years, how much can she pull out at the end every year for next 30 years
|3. Withdrawal amount|
|Portfolio balance (PV)||-500000|
|expected return : r||3.5 %|
|Withdrawal annual amount (PMT)|
- John wants to borrow $200,000 (two hundred dollars) to buy a house. Using a 30 year mortgage with interest rate of 4 %. Calculate MONTHLY PAYMENTS (Please review the narrated PPT where I have covered how to address Monthly payments) and amount of interest paid over the life of the loan. He is also considering paying off the loan in in 15 years.
- Calculate monthly PMT and how much interest amount ($$) will he pay over the life of the loan with a 30 year loan ?
- Calculate monthly PMT and how much interest will he pay over the life of the loan if he paid of n 15 years
- John has a store credit card with annual interest rate of 20 % (monthly: 20 % divided by 12 = 1.666667%). His current balance is $ 5000 and his minimum required monthly payment is $ 100. His friend told him that if he paid $ 150 ( instead of $100) it will reduce the amount of time (NPER) to pay by down the debt by more than fifty percent, and the total amount of interest he will pay will be reduced by almost 60 %. And if he paid $200 the time to pay will be down by 70 % and total interest paid by almost seventy five percent….Do you believe that is true?
Calculate (using excel and using excel formulas) number of months to pay off, and total interest paid for monthly payment (PMT) of $ 100, $ 150 and $200 respectively. And confirm if John’s friend is correct with his assessment.
