2 188 CHAPTER 5 Mathematcs of Fnance Everybody uses money. Sometmes you work for your money and other tmes your money works for you. For example, unless you are attendng college on a full scholarshp, t s very lkely that you and your famly have ether saved money or borrowed money, or both, to pay for your educaton.when we borrow money, we normally have to pay nterest for that prvlege.when we save money, for a future purchase or retrement, we are lendng money to a fnancal nsttuton and we expect to earn nterest on our nvestment.we wll develop the mathematcs n ths chapter to understand better the prncples of borrowng and savng.these deas wll then be used to compare dfferent fnancal opportuntes and make nformed decsons. 5.1 APPLY IT Smple and Compound Interest If you can borrow money at 8% nterest compounded annually or at 7.9% compounded monthly, whch loan would cost less? In ths secton we wll learn how to compare dfferent nterest rates wth dfferent compoundng perods. The queston above wll be answered n Example 8. Smple Interest Interest on loans of a year or less s frequently calculated as smple nterest, a type of nterest that s charged (or pad) only on the amount borrowed (or nvested) and not on past nterest. The amount borrowed s called the prncpal. The rate of nterest s gven as a percentage per year, expressed as a decmal. For example, 6% and % The tme the money s earnng nterest s calculated n years. One year s nterest s calculated by multplyng the prncpal tmes the nterest rate, or Pr. If the tme that the money earns nterest s other than one year, we multply the nterest for one year by the number of years, or Prt. Smple Interest where P s the prncpal; r s the annual nterest rate; t s the tme n years. I 5 Prt EXAMPLE 1 Smple Interest To buy furnture for a new apartment, Candace Cooney borrowed $5000 at 8% smple nterest for 11 months. How much nterest wll she pay? SOLUTION Use the formula I 5 Prt, wth P , r , and t 5 11/12 (n years). The total nterest she wll pay s or $ I /12 2 < , A depost of P dollars today at a rate of nterest r for t years produces nterest of I 5 Prt. The nterest, added to the orgnal prncpal P, gves P 1 Prt 5 P11 1 rt2.
3 5.1 Smple and Compound Interest 189 Ths amount s called the future value of P dollars at an nterest rate r for tme t n years. When loans are nvolved, the future value s often called the maturty value of the loan. Ths dea s summarzed as follows. Future or Maturty Value for Smple Interest The future or maturty value A of P dollars at a smple nterest rate r for t years s A 5 P1 1 1 rt 2. EXAMPLE 2 Maturty Values Fnd the maturty value for each loan at smple nterest. (a) A loan of $2500 to be repad n 8 months wth nterest of 4.3% SOLUTION The loan s for 8 months, or 8/12 5 2/3 of a year.

Of ths maturty value, represents nterest. A < , $ $ $71.67 (b) A loan of $11,280 for 85 days at 7% nterest SOLUTION It s common to assume 360 days n a year when workng wth smple nterest. We shall usually make such an assumpton n ths book. The maturty value n ths example s A 5 11,280 c a 85 bd < 11,466.43, 360 or $11, TRY YOUR TURN 1 CAUTION When usng the formula for future value, as well as all other formulas n ths chapter, we often neglect the fact that n real lfe, money amounts are rounded to the nearest penny. As a consequence, when the amounts are rounded, ther values may dffer by a few cents from the amounts gven by these formulas. For nstance, n Example 2(a), the nterest n each monthly payment would be $ /12 2 < $8.96, rounded to the nearest penny. After 8 months, the total s 81 $ $71.68, whch s 1 more than we computed n the example. In part (b) of Example 2 we assumed 360 days n a year. Hstorcally, to smplfy calculatons, t was often assumed that each year had twelve 30-day months, makng a year 360 days long. Treasury blls sold by the U.S. government assume a 360-day year n calculatng nterest. Interest found usng a 360-day year s called ordnary nterest and nterest found usng a 365-day year s called exact nterest. The formula for future value has four varables, P, r, t, and A. We can use the formula to fnd any of the quanttes that these varables represent, as llustrated n the next example.

EXAMPLE 3 Smple Interest Theresa Cortesn wants to borrow $8000 from Chrstne O Bren. She s wllng to pay back $8180 n 6 months. What nterest rate wll she pay? SOLUTION Use the formula for future value, wth A , P , t 5 6/ , and solve for r. A 5 P11 1 rt r r r r Dstrbutve property Subtract Dvde by Thus, the nterest rate s 4.5%. TRY YOUR TURN 2 When you depost money n the bank and earn nterest, t s as f the bank borrowed the money from you. Reversng the scenaro n Example 3, f you put $8000 n a bank account that pays smple nterest at a rate of 4.5% annually, you wll have accumulated $8180 after 6 months. Compound Interest As mentoned earler, smple nterest s normally used for loans or nvestments of a year or less. For longer perods compound nterest s used. Wth compound nterest, nterest s charged (or pad) on nterest as well as on prncpal. For example, f $1000 s deposted at 5% nterest for 1 year, at the end of the year the nterest s $ $50. The balance n the account s $ $50 5 $1050. If ths amount s left at 5% nterest for another year, the nterest s calculated on $1050 nstead of the orgnal $1000, so the amount n the account at the end of the second year s $ $ $ Note that smple nterest would produce a total amount of only The addtonal $2.50 s the nterest on $50 at 5% for one year. To fnd a formula for compound nterest, frst suppose that P dollars s deposted at a rate of nterest r per year. The amount on depost at the end of the frst year s found by the smple nterest formula, wth t 5 1. A 5 P11 1 r P11 1 r2 If the depost earns compound nterest, the nterest earned durng the second year s pad on the total amount on depost at the end of the frst year. Usng the formula A 5 P11 1 rt2 agan, wth P replaced by P11 1 r2 and t 5 1, gves the total amount on depost at the end of the second year. In the same way, the total amount on depost at the end of the thrd year s Generalzng, n t years the total amount on depost s called the compound amount. NOTE $ $1100.

5 5.1 Smple and Compound Interest 191 Interest can be compounded more than once per year. Common compoundng perods nclude semannually (two perods per year), quarterly (four perods per year), monthly (twelve perods per year), or daly (usually 365 perods per year). The nterest rate per perod,, s found by dvdng the annual nterest rate, r, by the number of compoundng perods, m, per year. To fnd the total number of compoundng perods, n, we multply the number of years, t, by the number of compoundng perods per year, m. The followng formula can be derved n the same way as the prevous formula. Compound Amount A 5 P n where 5 r and n 5 mt, m A s the future (maturty) value; P s the prncpal; r s the annual nterest rate; m s the number of compoundng perods per year; t s the number of years; n s the number of compoundng perods; s the nterest rate per perod. EXAMPLE 4 Compound Interest Suppose $1000 s deposted for 6 years n an account payng 4.25% per year compounded annually. (a) Fnd the compound amount. SOLUTION In the formula for the compound amount, P , /1, and n The compound amount s Usng a calculator, we get the compound amount. A 5 P n A A < $ , (b) Fnd the amount of nterest earned.

EXAMPLE 5 Compound Interest Fnd the amount of nterest earned by a depost of $2450 for 6.5 years at 5.25% compounded quarterly. SOLUTION Interest compounded quarterly s compounded 4 tmes a year. In 6.5 years, there are perods. Thus, n Interest of 5.25% per year s 5.25%/4 per quarter, so /4. Now use the formula for compound amount. A 5 P n A / < Rounded to the nearest cent, the compound amount s $ , so the nterest s $ $ $ TRY YOUR TURN 3
6 192 CHAPTER 5 Mathematcs of Fnance CAUTION As shown n Example 5, compound nterest problems nvolve two rates the annual rate r and the rate per compoundng perod. Be sure you understand the dstncton between them. When nterest s compounded annually, these rates are the same. In all other cases, 2 r. Smlarly, there are two quanttes for tme: the number of years t and the number of compoundng perods n. When nterest s compounded annually, these varables have the same value. In all other cases, n 2 t. It s nterestng to compare loans at the same rate when smple or compound nterest s used. Fgure 1 shows the graphs of the smple nterest and compound nterest formulas wth P at an annual rate of 10% from 0 to 20 years. The future value after 15 years s shown for each graph. After 15 years of compound nterest, $1000 grows to $ , whereas wth smple nterest, t amounts to $ , a dfference of $ A A = A = 1000(1.1) t 3500 Compound Interest A = A = 1000( t) 1000 Smple Interest 500 TECHNOLOGY NOTE FIGURE 1 Spreadsheets are deal for performng fnancal calculatons.

YOUR TURN 4 Fnd the annual nterest rate f $6500 s worth $ after beng nvested for 8 years n an account that compounded nterest monthly. EXAMPLE 6 Compound Interest Rate Suppose Carol Merrgan nvested $5000 n a savngs account that pad quarterly nterest. After 6 years the money had accumulated to $ What was the annual nterest rate? SOLUTION Because m 5 4 and t 5 6, the number of compoundng perods s n Usng ths value along wth P and A n the formula for compound amount, we have r/ r/ r/ /24 < r/ r Dvde both sdes by Take both sdes to the 1/24 power. Subtract 1 from both sdes. Multply both sdes by 4. The annual nterest rate was 4.5%. TRY YOUR TURN 4 Effectve Rate If $1 s deposted at 4% compounded quarterly, a calculator can be used to fnd that at the end of one year, the compound amount s $1.0406, an ncrease of 4.06% over the orgnal $1. The actual ncrease of 4.06% n the money s somewhat hgher than the stated ncrease of 4%. To dfferentate between these two numbers, 4% s called the nomnal or stated rate of nterest, whle 4.06% s called the effectve rate.* To avod confuson between stated rates and effectve rates, we shall contnue to use r for the stated rate and we wll use for the effectve rate. r E EXAMPLE 7 Effectve Rate Fnd the effectve rate correspondng to a stated rate of 6% compounded semannually. SOLUTION Here, 5 r/m / for m 5 2 perods. Use a calculator to fnd that < , whch shows that $1 wll ncrease to $ , an actual ncrease of 6.09%. The effectve rate s r E %. Generalzng from ths example, the effectve rate of nterest s gven by the followng formula.

Hs neghborhood bank charges 8% nterest compounded semannually. A downtown bank charges 7.9% nterest compounded monthly. At whch bank wll Joe pay the lesser amount of nterest? *When appled to consumer fnance, the effectve rate s called the annual percentage rate, APR, or annual percentage yeld, APY.
8 194 CHAPTER 5 Mathematcs of Fnance APPLY IT YOUR TURN 5 Fnd the effectve rate for an account that pays 2.7% compounded monthly. SOLUTION Compare the effectve rates. Neghborhood bank: Downtown bank: r E 5 a b % r E 5 a b < < 8.19% The neghborhood bank has the lower effectve rate, although t has a hgher stated rate. TRY YOUR TURN 5 Present Value The formula for compound nterest, A 5 P n, has four varables: A, P,, and n. Gven the values of any three of these varables, the value of the fourth can be found. In partcular, f A (the future amount),, and n are known, then P can be found. Here P s the amount that should be deposted today to produce A dollars n n perods. EXAMPLE 9 Present Value Rachel Reeve must pay a lump sum of $6000 n 5 years. What amount deposted today at 6.2% compounded annually wll amount to $6000 n 5 years? SOLUTION Here A , , n 5 5, and P s unknown. Substtutng these values nto the formula for the compound amount gves P or $ If Rachel leaves $ for 5 years n an account payng 6.2% compounded annually, she wll have $6000 when she needs t. To check your work, use the compound nterest formula wth P 5 $ , , and n 5 5. You should get A 5 $ As Example 9 shows, $6000 n 5 years s approxmately the same as $ today (f money can be deposted at 6.2% compounded annually). An amount that can be deposted today to yeld a gven sum n the future s called the present value of the future sum. Generalzng from Example 9, by solvng A 5 P n for P, we get the followng formula for present value. Present Value for Compound Interest P < , The present value of A dollars compounded at an nterest rate per perod for n perods s A P or P 5 A n. n YOUR TURN 6 Fnd the present value of $10,000 n 7 years f money can be deposted at 4.25% compounded quarterly. EXAMPLE 10 Present Value Fnd the present value of $16,000 n 9 years f money can be deposted at 6% compounded semannually. SOLUTION In 9 years there are semannual perods. A rate of 6% per year s 3% n each semannual perod. Apply the formula wth A 5 16,000, , and n A P ,000 n 18 < A depost of $ today, at 6% compounded semannually, wll produce a total of $16,000 n 9 years. TRY YOUR TURN 6 We can solve the compound amount formula for n also, as the followng example shows.

How much tme s requred? SOLUTION Graph the functons y /4 2 x and y 5 10,000 n the same wndow, and then fnd the pont of ntersecton. As Fgure 3 shows, the functons ntersect at x Note, however, that nterest s only added to the account every quarter, so we must wat 108 quarters, or 108/ years, for the money to be worth at least $10, ,000 Intersecton 0 X Y FIGURE 3 FOR REVIEW Method 2 Usng Logarthms (Optonal) For a revew of logarthmc functons, please refer to Appendx B f you are usng Fnte Mathematcs, or to Secton 10.5 f you are usng Fnte Mathematcs and Calculus wth Applcatons. The only property of logarthms that s needed to fnd the compoundng tme s logx r 5 rlogx. Logarthms may be used n base 10, usng the LOG button on a calculator, or n base e, usng the LN button. YOUR TURN 7 Fnd the tme needed for $3800 deposted at 3.5% compounded semannually to be worth at least $7000. The goal s to solve the equaton Dvde both sdes by 2450, and smplfy the expresson n parentheses to get Now take the logarthm (ether base 10 or base e) of both sdes to get log n 2 5 log1 10,000/ n log log1 10,000/ n 5 log1 10,000 / log < Use logarthm property log x r 5 r log x. Dvde both sdes by log As n Method 1, ths means that we must wat 108 quarters, or 108/ years, for the money to be worth at least $10,000. EXAMPLE /4 2 n 5 10, n 5 10, Prce Doublng Suppose the general level of nflaton n the economy averages 8% per year. Fnd the number of years t would take for the overall level of prces to double. SOLUTION To fnd the number of years t wll take for $1 worth of goods or servces to cost $2, fnd n n the equaton n, where A 5 2, P 5 1, and Ths equaton smplfes to n. Solvng ths equaton usng ether a graphng calculator or logarthms, as n Example 11, shows that n Thus, the overall level of prces wll double n about 9 years. TRY YOUR TURN 7 You can quckly estmate how long t takes a sum of money to double, when compounded annually, by usng ether the rule of 70 or the rule of 72. The rule of 70 (used for
10 196 CHAPTER 5 Mathematcs of Fnance small rates of growth) says that for # r, 0.05, the value of 70/100r gves a good approxmaton of the doublng tme. The rule of 72 (used for larger rates of growth) says that for 0.05 # r # 0.12, the value of 72/100r approxmates the doublng tme well. In Example 12, the nflaton rate s 8%, so the doublng tme s approxmately 72/8 5 9 years.* Contnuous Compoundng Suppose that a bank, n order to attract more busness, offers to not just compound nterest every quarter, or every month, or every day, or even every hour, but constantly? Ths type of compound nterest, n whch the number of tmes a year that the nterest s compounded becomes nfnte, s known as contnuous compoundng. To see how t works, look back at Example 5, where we found that $2450, when deposted for 6.5 years at 5.25% compounded quarterly, resulted n a compound amount of $ We can fnd the compound amount f we compound more often by puttng dfferent values of n n the formula A /n 2 6.5n, as shown n the followng table. Compoundng n Tmes Annually n Type of Compoundng Compound Amount 4 quarterly $ monthly $ daly $ every hour $ Notce that as n becomes larger, the compound amount also becomes larger, but by a smaller and smaller amount. In ths example, ncreasng the number of compoundng perods a year from 360 to 8640 only earns 8 more. It s shown n calculus that as n becomes nfntely large, P1 1 1 r/n 2 nt gets closer and closer to Pe rt, where e s a very mportant rratonal number whose approxmate value s To calculate nterest wth contnuous compoundng, use the e x button on your calculator. You wll learn more about the number e f you study calculus, where e plays as mportant a role as p does n geometry. Contnuous Compoundng If a depost of P dollars s nvested at a rate of nterest r compounded contnuously for t years, the compound amount s A 5 Pe rt dollars. EXAMPLE 13 Contnuous Compoundng Suppose that $2450 s deposted at 5.25% compounded contnuously. (a) Fnd the compound amount and the nterest earned after 6.5 years. SOLUTION Usng the formula for contnuous compoundng wth P , r , and t 5 6.5, the compound amount s A e < The compound amount s $ , whch s just a penny more than f t had been compounded hourly, or 9 more than daly compoundng. Because t makes so lttle dfference, contnuous compoundng has dropped n popularty n recent years. The nterest n ths case s $ $996.43, or $7.65 more than f t were compounded quarterly, as n Example 5. *To see where the rule of 70 and the rule of 72 come from, see the secton on Taylor Seres n Calculus wth Applcatons by Margaret L. Lal, Raymond N. Greenwell, and Nathan P. Rtchey, Pearson, 2012.
11 5.1 Smple and Compound Interest 197 YOUR TURN 8 Fnd the nterest earned on $5000 deposted at 3.8% compounded contnuously for 9 years. (b) Fnd the effectve rate. SOLUTION As n Example 7, the effectve rate s just the amount of nterest that $1 would earn n one year, or e < , or 5.39%. In general, the effectve rate for nterest compounded contnuously at a rate r s just e r 2 1. (c) Fnd the tme requred for the orgnal $2450 to grow to $10,000. SOLUTION Smlar to the process n Example 11, we must solve the equaton 10, e t. Dvde both sdes by 2450, and solve the resultng equaton as n Example 11, ether by takng logarthms of both sdes or by usng a graphng calculator to fnd the ntersecton of the graphs of y e t and y 5 10,000. If you use logarthms, you can take advantage of the fact that ln1 e x 2 5 x, where ln x represents the logarthm n base e. In ether case, the answer s years. Notce that unlke n Example 11, you don t need to wat untl the next compoundng perod to reach ths amount, because nterest s beng added to the account contnuously. TRY YOUR TURN 8 At ths pont, t seems helpful to summarze the notaton and the most mportant formulas for smple and compound nterest. We use the followng varables.

In ths secton and the next, we develop future value and present value formulas for such perodc payments. To develop these formulas, we must frst dscuss sequences. Geometrc Sequences If a and r are nonzero real numbers, the nfnte lst of numbers a, ar, ar 2, ar 3, ar 4, *, ar n, * s called a geometrc sequence. For example, f a 5 3 and r 522, we have the sequence 3, , , , , *, or 3, 26, 12, 224, 48, *. In the sequence a, ar, ar 2, ar 3, ar 4, *, the number a s called the frst term of the sequence, ar s the second term, ar 2 s the thrd term, and so on. Thus, for any n $ 1, ar n21 s the nth term of the sequence.
15 5.2 Future Value of an Annuty 201 Each term n the sequence s r tmes the precedng term. The number r s called the common rato of the sequence. CAUTION Do not confuse r, the rato of two successve terms n a geometrc seres, wth r, the annual nterest rate. Dfferent letters mght have been helpful, but the usage n both cases s almost unversal.

16 202 CHAPTER 5 Mathematcs of Fnance APPLY IT Ordnary Annutes A sequence of equal payments made at equal perods of tme s called an annuty. If the payments are made at the end of the tme perod, and f the frequency of payments s the same as the frequency of compoundng, the annuty s called an ordnary annuty. The tme between payments s the payment perod, and the tme from the begnnng of the frst payment perod to the end of the last perod s called the term of the annuty. The future value of the annuty, the fnal sum on depost, s defned as the sum of the compound amounts of all the payments, compounded to the end of the term. Two common uses of annutes are to accumulate funds for some goal or to wthdraw funds from an account. For example, an annuty may be used to save money for a large purchase, such as an automoble, a college educaton, or a down payment on a home. An annuty also may be used to provde monthly payments for retrement. We explore these optons n ths and the next secton. For example, suppose $1500 s deposted at the end of each year for the next 6 years n an account payng 8% per year compounded annually. Fgure 4 shows ths annuty. To fnd the future value of the annuty, look separately at each of the $1500 payments. The frst of these payments wll produce a compound amount of Term of annuty End of year Perod 1 Perod 2 Perod 3 Perod 4 Perod 5 Perod 6 $1500 $1500 $1500 $1500 $1500 $1500 The $1500 s deposted at the end of the year. FIGURE 4 Use 5 as the exponent nstead of 6, snce the money s deposted at the end of the frst year and earns nterest for only 5 years. The second payment of $1500 wll produce a compound amount of As shown n Fgure 5, the future value of the annuty s (The last payment earns no nterest at all.)

Thus, the sum equals a1r n 2 12 r < $11, To generalze ths result, suppose that payments of R dollars each are deposted nto an account at the end of each perod for n perods, at a rate of nterest per perod.

A formula for the future value of an annuty S of n payments of R dollars each at the end of each consecutve nterest perod, wth nterest compounded at a rate per perod, follows.* Recall that ths type of annuty, wth payments at the end of each tme perod, s called an ordnary annuty.

For example, a snkng fund mght be set up to receve money that wll be needed to pay off the prncpal on a loan at some future tme.

What nterest rate would provde that amount? SOLUTION One way to answer ths queston s to solve the equaton for S n terms of x wth S 5 130,000. Ths s a dffcult equaton to solve. Although tral and error could be used, t would be easer to use the graphng calculator graph n Fgure 7. Addng the lne y 5 130,000 to the graph and then usng the capablty of the calculator to fnd the ntersecton pont wth the curve shows the annual nterest rate must be at least 8.79% to the nearest hundredth.
