2 ISBN: Chapter 5 Mathematcs of Fnance Whether you are n a poston to nvest money or to borrow money, t s mportant for both consumers and busness managers to understand nterest. The formulas for nterest are developed n ths chapter. 5.1 SIMPLE AND COMPOUND INTEREST THINK ABOUT IT If you can borrow money at 11% nterest compounded annually or at 10.8% compounded monthly, whch loan would cost less? We shall see how to make such comparsons n ths secton. 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 percent per year, expressed as a 1 decmal. For example, 6% 5.06 and 11 2% The tme the money s earnng nterest s calculated n years. Smple nterest s the product of the prncpal, rate, and tme. SIMPLE 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, Jennfer Wall borrowed $5000 at 8% smple nterest for 11 months. How much nterest wll she pay? Soluton From the formula, I 5 Prt, wth P , r 5.08, and t 5 11/12 (n years). The total nterest she wll pay s or $ I / , 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. 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.

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 9.2% Soluton The loan s for 8 months, or 8/12 5 2/3 of a year. The maturty value s A 5 P1 1 1 rt 2 or $ (The answer s rounded to the nearest cent, as s customary n fnancal problems.) Of ths maturty value, represents nterest. (b) A loan of $11,280 for 85 days at 11% nterest Soluton 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 or $11, A c a 2 3 bd A < < , $ $ $ A 5 11,280 c1 1.11a 85 bd < 11,572.97, 360 CAUTION When usng the formula for future value, as well as all other formulas n ths chapter, we 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 $ /122 < $19.17, rounded to the nearest penny. After 8 months, the total s 81$ $153.36, whch s 3 more than we computed n the example. ISBN: In part (b) of Example 2 we assumed 360 days n a year. 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.

Soluton Use the formula for future value, wth t 5 6/12 5.5, and solve for r. A , P , A 5 P11 1 rt r r r r Thus, the nterest rate s 9.5%. Dstrbutve property Subtract Dvde by 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 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. 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.

Compound nterest Smple nterest A 5 P11 1 r2 t A 5 P1 1 1 rt 2 The mportant dstncton between the two formulas s that n the compound nterest formula, the number of years, t, s an exponent, so that money grows much more rapdly when nterest s compounded. 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.

Amount of nterest 5 $ $ $ EXAMPLE 5 Compound Interest Fnd the amount of nterest earned by a depost of $2450 for 6.5 years at 5.25% compounded quarterly. Soluton 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 /42 26 < Rounded to the nearest cent, the compound amount s $ , so the nterest s $ $ $ 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. 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 at compound nterest, $1000 grows to $ , whereas wth smple nterest, t amounts to $ , a dfference of $ Spreadsheets are deal for performng fnancal calculatons. Fgure 2 (on the next page) shows a Mcrosoft Excel spreadsheet wth the formulas for compound and smple nterest used to create columns B and C, respectvely, when $1000 s nvested at an annual rate of 10%. Compare row 16 wth the calculator results n Fgure 1. For more detals on the use of spreadsheets n the mathematcs of fnance, see The Spreadsheet Manual that s avalable wth ths book. 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 Compound Interest Smple Interest 20 FIGURE 1
7 5.1 Smple and Compound Interest 209 FIGURE 2 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 r e for the effectve rate. EXAMPLE 6 Effectve Rate Fnd the effectve rate correspondng to a stated rate of 6% compounded semannually. Soluton Here, r/m 5 6%/2 5 3% 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 %.

Soluton Use the formula gven above wth r and m The effectve rate s r e 5 a b , or 5.01%. EXAMPLE 8 Effectve Rate Joe Vetere needs to borrow money. Hs neghborhood bank charges 11% nterest compounded semannually. A downtown bank charges 10.8% nterest compounded monthly. At whch bank wll Joe pay the lesser amount of nterest? Soluton Compare the effectve rates. Neghborhood bank: Downtown bank: r e 5 a b < 11.3% r e 5 a b < < 11.4% The neghborhood bank has the lower effectve rate, although t has a hgher stated rate. 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? Soluton Here A , 5.062, n 5 5, and P s unknown. Substtutng these values nto the formula for the compound amount gves P 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 $ , 5.062, and n 5 5. You should get A 5 $
9 5.1 Smple and Compound Interest 211 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 The present value of A dollars compounded at an nterest rate per perod for n perods s P 5 A n or P 5 A n. EXAMPLE 10 Present Value Fnd the present value of $16,000 n 9 years f money can be deposted at 6% compounded semannually. Soluton 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, 5.03, and n P 5 A ,000 n 18 < A depost of $ today, at 6% compounded semannually, wll produce a total of $16,000 n 9 years. We can solve the compound amount formula for n also, as the followng example shows. EXAMPLE 11 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. Soluton 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. ISBN: By tryng varous values of n, we fnd that n 5 9 s approxmately correct, because < 2. The exact value of n can be found quckly by usng logarthms, but that s beyond the scope of ths chapter. Thus, the overall level of prces wll double n about 9 years.

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. Each term n the sequence s r tmes the precedng term. The number r s called the common rato of the sequence.

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, an expensve trp, 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 3 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.

The frst payment of R dollars wll produce a compound amount of R n21 dollars, the second payment wll produce R n22 dollars, and so on; the fnal payment earns no nterest and contrbutes just R dollars to the total.

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. FUTURE VALUE OF AN ORDINARY ANNUITY S 5 R c n 2 1 d or S 5 Rs n0 where S s the future value; R s the payment; s the nterest rate per perod; n s the number of perods. A calculator wll be very helpful n computatons wth annutes. The TI- 83/84 Plus graphng calculator has a specal FINANCE menu that s desgned to gve any desred result after enterng the basc nformaton. If your calculator does not have ths feature, many calculators can easly be programmed to evaluate the formulas ntroduced n ths secton and the next. We nclude these programs n The Graphng Calculator Manual avalable for ths text. EXAMPLE 4 Ordnary Annuty Karen Scott s an athlete who beleves that her playng career wll last 7 years. To prepare for her future, she deposts $22,000 at the end of each year for 7 years n an account payng 6% compounded annually. How much wll she have on depost after 7 years? Soluton Her payments form an ordnary annuty, wth r 5 22,000, n 5 7, and The future value of ths annuty (by the formula above) s S 5 22,000 c d < 184,664.43,.06 or $184, Snkng Funds A fund set up to receve perodc payments as n Example 4 s called a snkng fund. The perodc payments, together wth the nterest earned by the payments, are desgned to produce a gven sum at some tme n the future. 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. If the payments are all the same amount and are made at the end of a regular tme perod, they form an ordnary annuty.

It s recommended that they start to save early and regularly. Sarah Santora, a baby boomer, has decded to depost $200 each month for 20 years n an account that pays nterest of 7.2% compounded monthly. (a) How much wll be n the account at the end of 20 years? Soluton Ths savngs plan s an annuty wth R 5 200, 5.072/12, and n The future value s S c / d < 106,752.47,.072/12 FIGURE 6 or $106, Fgure 6 shows a calculator graph of the functon S c x/ d x/12 where r, the annual nterest rate, s desgnated x. The value of the functon at x 5.072, shown at the bottom of the wndow, agrees wth our result above. (b) Sarah beleves she needs to accumulate $130,000 n the 20-year perod to have enough for retrement. What nterest rate would provde that amount? Method 1: Graphng Calculator Method 2: TVM Solver Soluton 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 6. 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. See Fgure 7 below. Usng the TVM Solver under the FINANCE menu on the TI-83/84 Plus calculator, enter 240 for N (the number of perods), 0 for PV (present value), 2200 for PMT (negatve because the money s beng pad out), for FV (future value), and 12 for P/Y (payments per year). Put the cursor next to I% (payment) and press SOLVE. The result, shown n Fgure 8, ndcates that an nterest rate of 8.79% s needed. 150, FIGURE 7 FIGURE 8

The table shown n Fgure 9 confrms that the payment should be between $243 and $244. We can also use a graphng calculator or spreadsheet to make a table of the amount n a snkng fund. In the formula for future value of an annuty, smply let n be a varable wth values from 1 to the total number of payments. Fgure 10(a) (a) (b) ISBN: FIGURE 10

Annutes Due The formula developed above s for ordnary annutes those wth payments made at the end of each tme perod. These results can be modfed slghtly to apply to annutes due annutes n whch payments are made at the begnnng of each tme perod. To fnd the future value of an annuty due, treat each payment as f t were made at the end of the precedng perod. That s, fnd s n0 for one addtonal perod; to compensate for ths, subtract the amount of one payment. Thus, the future value of an annuty due of n payments of R dollars each at the begnnng of consecutve nterest perods, wth nterest compounded at the rate of per perod, s S 5 R c n d 2 R or S 5 Rs n110 2 R. The fnance feature of the TI-83/84 Plus can be used to fnd the future value of an annuty due as well as an ordnary annuty. If ths feature s not bult n, you may wsh to program your calculator to evaluate ths formula, too. EXAMPLE 7 Future Value of an Annuty Due Fnd the future value of an annuty due f payments of $500 are made at the begnnng of each quarter for 7 years, n an account payng 6% compounded quarterly. Soluton In 7 years, there are n 5 28 quarterly perods. Add one perod to get n , and use the formula wth 5 6%/ %. S c d < 17, The account wll have a total of $17, after 7 years. 5.2 EXERCISES Fnd the ffth term of each geometrc sequence. 1. a 5 3; r a 5 5; r a 528; r a 526; r a 5 1; r a 5 12; r a ; r a 5 729; r Fnd the sum of the frst four terms for each geometrc sequence. 9. a 5 1; r a 5 3; r a 5 5; r a 5 6; r a 5 128; r a 5 81; r
