A. 14% B. 17%. C. 20%. D.23%. E. 26%

2. A loan is being repaid by payments of 1100 at the end of every 5 years over 55 years at a nominal annual interest rate of 4.4% compounded quarterly. Compute the loan amount.

A. 4092. B. 4150. C. 6504. D. 6931. E. 9432

3. The principal on a \$12,000 loan is to be repaid within one year with level monthly payments, due at the beginning of each month. The twelve payments equal \$1,000 each. The entire finance charge of \$929 plus the first monthly payment are due immediately. Which of the following is closest to the effective annual interest rate on the loan?

4. Smith purchases a building by making a \$10,000 down payment and agreeing to make eight semiannual payments of \$2,500 each, the first due at the end of three years. The effective annual rate of interest is 5%.In which of the following ranges is the purchase price of the building?

Q1:

PV of 1st option of payment= 2000*[1-(1+r)^-18]/r

PV f 2nd option of payment= 2500*[1-(1+r)^-9]/r

These 2 option should be having same PV;

By trial and error; rate=17%

Q2:

quarterly rate=4.4/4=1.1% ;

rate every 5 year= (1+1.1%)^20-1 =.24458084 ----- 5 year payment

PV of loan=1100*[1-(1+.24458084)^-11]/.24458084 ------annuity formula; total 11 payments

=4092

Q3:

PV of loan=12000=1000*(1+r)*[1-(1+r)^-12]/r

By trail and error; 19.5%

Q4:

semi annula rate= (1+5%)^(1/2)-1 =.02469507659

PV of payments = 2500*[1-(1+.02469507659)^-8]/(.02469507659*(1+.02469507659)^6)

=15504.73

Total purchse price of building= 10000+15504.73 =25504.73
