Question

- Determining the better investment opportunity?

**Option 1** - You just
invested $ 5,000 in a bank that pays you 4.25% simple interest.
After 3 years with no withdraw, what is your balance?

(n =3) (i =4.25%) (pv =-5000) (pmt =0) fv =?)

**Option 2** - You just
invested $ 5,000 in a bank that pays you 4.15% compounded monthly.
After 3 years with no withdraw, what is your balance?

(n =3*12) (i =4.15%/12) (pv = -5000) (pmt = 0) fv = ?)

**What option (Option 1 or
Option 2) is better and explain why?**

Answer #1

Since the terms given are for excel, I have used the same to arrive at the solution. Balance after 3 years is:

**Option 1**

+FV(4.25%,3,0,5000)= **$ 5664.98**

**Option 2**

+FV(4.15%/4,12,0,5000)= **$ 5659.28**

Option 1 is better because you are getting a slightly higher rate of interest, which means the final value that you receive in this case is more. Had both the rates of interest been the same, one typically receives better value when interest is compounded, in which case the answer would then change to option 2.

You have two payment options. Option 1 is to pay $3000 in one year
from today, $5,000 in two years from today, and $8,000 in three
years from today. Option 2 is to pay $15,000 today. Demonstrate
which is the better option for you if money is worth 5.00 % p.a.
simple interest. Don’t forget to state which is the better option
for you

A great opportunity came up. You have a chance to get an
investment that pays $500 at the end of every six months for the
next three years. APR is 12%. Here is the trick, interest is
compounded quarterly. Find the PV of the investment
(Please breakdown answer using financial calculator, ex: PV, FV,
PMT, N, I and how you came up with each value...thanks!)
