1. The annual payment on a $1,000 loan over a four year period at 10% per year interest is $315.42. The balance immediately after the first payment has been made is nearest to:

(a) $684.58

(b) $784.58 – simple test, 1000*.1=100 interest, add to 1000 prin., subtract 315.42 pymt.

(c) $884.58

(d) $1,100

2. A permanent scholarship fund is started through a donation of $100,000. If five scholarships of $5,000 are awarded each year beginning ten years from now, the rate of return for the invested money is nearest to:

(a) 20%

(b) 14%

(c) 10% – fv(100,000 at 10% for ten years equals approx. 250,000. 10% is 25,000 per year.

(d) 6%

3. You are making $1,000 monthly deposits into a fund that pays interest at a rate of

6% compounded monthly. What would be the balance at the end of 10 years?

(a) $163,879 = fv of an annuity, 120 monthly pmts, 6/12 monthly interest, $1000 pd monthly.

(b) $158,169

(c) $127,200

(d) $159,423

4. You borrow $20,000 from a bank to be repaid in monthly installments for 3 years

at 9% interest compounded monthly. What is the portion of interest payment for

the 18th payment?

(a) $150

(b) $88.28

(c) $80.04

(d) $84.17 did amortization schedule. 20,000, 9%, 36 pymts.

5. You are buying your first car and need to borrow $16,000 over 5 years. If interest is 6%, what are your monthly payments?

(a)$267

(b)$309 = pmt(.06/12, 60,16000)

(c)$347

(d)$389

6. How many years will it take for the dollar’s purchasing power to be one-half what

it is now, if the general inflation rate is expected to continue at the rate of 6% for

an indefinite period?

(a) About 7 years

(b) About 8 years

(c) About 11 years

(d) About 12 years = 1/1.06, then multiply each succeeding year by 1/1.06, 12 years gets it to $.4969

7. If you deposit $1,000 now and are promised payments of $500 three years from now and $1500 five years from now, the equation that will yield the correct rate of return is:

(a) 0 = -1000 + 500(P/F,i,3) + 1500(P/F,i,5)

(b) 0 = 1000 + 500(P/F, i, 3) + 1500 (P/F, i, 5)

(c) 1000 = -500(P/F,i,3) – 1500(P/F, i,5)

(d) -1000= 500(P/F,i,3) + 1500 (P/F,i,5)

8. Consider the following project balance profiles for proposed investment projects.

Project Balances

N Project A Project B Project C

NPW – $416 –

Rate Used 15% ? –

Statement 1—For Project A, the cash flow at the end of year 2 is $100

Statement 2—For Project C, its net future worth at the end of year 2 is $150

Statement 3—For Project B, the interest rate used is 25%
