Textbook Problem

Gabriel Hopen, a 32-year-old commercial artist, has just signed a contract with an advertising agency. Gabriel’s starting salary is $47,800. The agency has agreed to increase his salary by 8.5% annually. How much will Gabriel’s salary be after 5 years? Round to the nearest whole dollar.

To determine

To calculate: The Gabriel’s salary after 5 years was $47,800 when agency has agreed to

increase his salary 8.5% annually.

Explanation

Given information:

Gabriel’s starting salary was $47,800.

His agency has agreed to increase his salary 8.5% annually.

Formula used:

Compounding period can be defined as the duration or length of time from one interest payment to the next. If an investment made for 4 years at 6% compounded annually (once per year) then it would have four compounding periods which can be calculated by the formula given below:

Compounding periods=Term of investments(years)×m

Here, m is the period per year.

The interest rate per period can be calculated by dividing the annual, or nominal, rate by the number of periods per year,

Interest rate per period=Nominal ratePeriod per year

The compound amount (Future value) can be calculated by the formula given below:

A=P×(1+i)n

Here, P is the principal, i is the rate per period and n is the compounding period.

Calculation:

Consider the statement as “Gabriel’s starting salary was $47,800. His agency has agreed to increase his salary 8.5% annually. Calculate Gabriel’s salary after 5 years
