Question

Given an imterst rate of 1%, the future value of a lump sum invested today will always:

A. remain constant, regardless of the investment time period.

B. decrease if the investment time period is shortened.

C. decrease if the investment time period is lengthened.

D. be equal to $0

Answer #1

The correct answer is **B**

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

FV = PV (1 + r)^n

Future value is directly related to the interest rate and time period.

So the FV will increase with increase in the time period and decrease when the investment period is shortened.

SINGLE LUMP-SUM Below are four independent scenarios relating to
the investment of a single lump-sum amount. Calculate the future
value of each, using the algebraic formula illustrated in the
textbook. Then, verify your answer by reference to the “future
value of $1” table. If you have a “business” calculator,
additionally verify your calculations using the future value
functions included with your calculator.
a) An investment of $2,000 for 6 years and then also for 8
years, at a 6% annual...

Future value is the value today of money at a future point in
time. For example take a $10 investment that would grow to $100 in
five years. The future value of that $10 investment is $100. It is
the value today of money tomorrow. It is calculated based on the
amount of money, the amount of time (in years) into the future and
a given monthly interest rate. Create a method with three
parameters that computes future investment using...

A. A contract features a lump-sum future flow of $46,000 three
years from today. If you can now purchase that flow for $42,201.84,
then what annual implied return would you earn on this
contract?
B. An annuity contract will make 8 annual payments and the first
payment occurs exactly a year from today. If the annuity has a 9.2%
rate and a current PV or price of $308.98, then what must be the
size of its annual payments?
C. An...

8. Future Value. YOU invest a single lump sum of
$5500 at the age of 21 years old and receive a 12% rate of annual
return for 50 years or until the age of 72.
A) How much will you have at the end of the 50-year
period?
B ) How many times has your money doubled in the 50
years?

What will be the future value?
(1). A lump-sum of $3000 now, in 5 years at 7% compounded
annually.
(2). Series of payment: $3000 at the end of each year for 5
years at 7% compounded annually.
(3). $1000 at the end of the first year, then increase at a rate
of $100 for the following 4 years. The interest rate of 7%
compounded annually.
(4). $1000 at the end of the first year, then increase by 10%
for the...
