Answer #1

a. Steve Allen invested $12,000
today in a fund that earns 8% interest. If the interest compounds
* semiannually*, what amount will the
investment grow to in 6 years?

Answer:

Semi Annual Interest Rate = 8% / 2 = 4% or 0.04

Semi Annual Period to Maturity = 6 * 2 = 12

The amount will the investment grow to in 6 years = Amount Invested today (1 + Semi Annual Interest Rate) 12

= $12,000 (1 + 0.04)12

= $12,000 * 1.601032

**=
$19,212.38**
