### Present value concept Answer each of the following questions- What sin.docx

• 1. Present value concept Answer each of the following questions. What single investment made today, earning 12% annual interest, will be worth \$6,000 at the end of 6 years? What is the present value of \$6,000 to he received at the end of 6 years if the discount rate is 12%? What is the most you would pay today for a promise to repay you \$6,000 at d* end of 6 years if your opportunity cost is 12%? Compare, contrast, and discuss your findings in parts a through c. Solution Part a We have: FV = 6000 N= 6 R= 12% We can use following formula to calculate pv: PV = FV / (1+r)^n = 6000/ (1+0.12)^6 = 6000 / 1.12^6 = \$3039.79 So they need to invest \$3039.79 to accumulate \$6,000 in 6 years. Part b We have: FV = 6000
• 2. N= 6 R= 12% We can use following formula to calculate pv: PV = FV / (1+r)^n = 6000/ (1+0.12)^6 = 6000 / 1.12^6 = \$3039.79 Hence, PV of \$6000 would be \$3039.79. Part c We have: FV = 6000 N= 6 R= 12% We can use following formula to calculate pv: PV = FV / (1+r)^n = 6000/ (1+0.12)^6 = 6000 / 1.12^6 = \$3039.79 I would be willing to pay \$3039.79 for a promise of \$6000 repayment in 6 years. Part d All parts from a-c has the same thing to calculate, they differ only in the manner of asking question.
