Invest R10000 in a bank investing at 14% compounded twice a year.

A = P(1+i)^n, where A is the amount, P is the principal or initial investment, i is the interest rate per period, and n is the number of periods.

If the annual rate is 14%, the semi-annual rate is 7%. One year is now composed of 2 6-month periods.

So after one year, we have A = 10 000 (1.07)^2 or 11,449.

Good luck,

Paul

SOURCE: invalid computation

Hmmm, I don't think the problem is with your calculator. I'd be checking the accounting question again as I don't think you've got your annuity question structured right.

4 Year Annuity
14% Annual Interest Rate
Your contributing $4,000 per year over the next 4 years
and you already know the future value is $50,069?

You'd have to make annual payments of $11,878.93 (4 of them) at that annual interest rate to get to a future value of $50,069 (which has a present value of $43,632.24).

Are you sure that the FV isn't the trade in value at the end of the 4 years?

Please help me solve this equation. What is the principal that must be invested for 6 years at 10.5% to earn R2200.50 simple interest


With simple interest, there is no compounding. To earn 2200.50 interest in six years, you need to earn 2200.50/6 = 366.75 each year. In order to earn 366.75 at 10.5%, you need a principal of 366.75/10.5% = 3492.86.

If the interest is compounded annually then you only need to invest 2682.13.

An original investment of 10,000 earns 7.50% interest compound continously, What will the investment be worth in 3 years? 30 years?


A=P(1+i)^n, where P is the Principal, i is the interest rate per period, and n is the number of periods.

A=10,000(1+0.075)^3, assuming the interest is compounded annually

For 30 years, we would replace the number of period 3 with a 30.

Good luck,
