Answer #1

**Answer to Question
1:**

Amount Invested (Present Value) = $5,000

Rate (r ) = 4%

Time (n ) = 10 years

Value of Investment in 10 years (Future Value) = ??

Future Value = Present Value * (1 + r) ^ n

Future Value = $5,000 * (1 + 0.04)^ 10

Future Value = $5,000 * 1.04 ^ 10

Future Value = $5,000 * 1.48024

Future Value = $7,401.20

**The value of fund will be worth $7,401.20 in 10
years.**

Interest = Value of Fund In 10 years – Amount invested

Interest = $7,401.20 - $5,000.00

**Interest = $2,401.20**
