Answer #1

Information provided:

Future value= $18,700

Time= 3 years*52= 156 weeks

Interest rate= 5.6%/52= 0.1077% per week

The question is solved by computing the present value.

Enter the below in a financial calculator to compute the amount to be placed in an account now:

FV= 18,700

N= 156

I/Y= 0.1077

Press the CPT key and PV to compute the present value.

The value obtained is 15,809.55.

Therefore, **$15,809.55** should be placed in an
