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,

Paul

To get $500,00 four years from now, how much must you invest today, assuming an annual interest rate of 4%?

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.

500,000 = P (1+0.04)^4

500,000/(1.04^4) = P

P = $427,402.10

Good luck,

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.

If the interest rate is 1 percent per month then it's 12 percent per year. You're making monthly payments so the payments per year is 12.

Sad as it may be, this calculator does not have a % button/key/menu. So do not look for it. However you can still convert your decimal numbers to percent values.

1 %= 1 per cent (100) = 1/100=0.01

0.01=0.01*100/100=(0.01*100)/100=1/100=1%

To convert a decimal number to %, move the decimal mark two places to the right.

To convert a percent value to a decimal value, move the decimal mark two places to the left and drop the % symbol.

75%=0.75

The IRR function is provided by Excel so you can calculate an
internal rate of return for a series of values. The IRR is the interest
rate accrued on an investment
consisting of payments and income that occur at the same regular
periods. In the values provided to the function, you enter payments you
make as negative values and income you receive as positive values.

For instance, let's say you are investing in your daughter's business, and she will make payments back to you annually over the course of four years. You are planning to invest $50,000, and you expect to receive $10,000 in the first year, $17,500 in the second year, $25,000 in the third, and $30,000 in the fourth.

Since the $50,000 is money you are paying out, it is entered in Excel as a negative value. The other values are entered as positive values. For instance, you could enter –50000 in cell D4, 10000 in cell D5, 17500 in cell D6, 25000 in cell D7, and 30000 in cell D8. To calculate the internal rate of return, you would use the following formula:

=IRR(D4:D8)

The function returns an IRR of 19.49%.

The ranges you use with the IRR function must include at least one payment and one receipt. If you get a #NUM error, and you have included payments and receipts in the range, then Excel needs more information to calculate the IRR. Specifically, you need to provide a "starting guess" for Excel to work with. For example:

=IRR(D4:D8, -5%)

This usage means that the IRR function starts calculating at –5%, and then recursively attempts to resolve the IRR based on the values in the range.

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?
