## Problem 1

Calculate the future value (FV) of each present value (PV) listed below using the future worth of \$1 (FW\$1) factors in AH 505: ## Problem 2

You have a choice of investing in either of two accounts:

• Account A earns an annual rate of 5% with annual compounding
• Account B earns an annual rate of 5.25% at simple interest

You plan to invest \$10,000 in one of the accounts today and withdraw the funds 4 years later. In which account should you place your funds?

## Problem 3

If you deposit \$10,000 in an account that pays an annual interest rate of 7%, how much money will you have at the end of:

1. 10 years?
2. 20 years?
3. 40 years?

## Problem 4

You deposit \$10,000 today in an account that earns an annual rate of 7.5%. At the end of 5 years, how much interest on interest will the account have earned? Hint: The amount of interest on interest is the difference between the future value at compound interest and the future value at simple interest.
