The following investments require table factors for periods beyond the table. Create the new table factor rounded to five places and calculate the present value for each. Compound Amount $12,000 Term of Investment(years) 10 Nominal Rate(%) 16 Interest Compounded quarterly New Table Value .20829 _ Present Value$2,499 .48 _

To determine

To calculate: The new table factor and the present value (principal) that has compound amount $12,000 made for 10 year at 16% interest compounded quarterly. Explanation Given information: An investment with compound amount$12,000 made for 10 year at 16% interest compounded quarterly.

Formula used:

Compounding period can be calculated by formula given below:

Compounding periods=Term of investments(years)×m

Here, m is the period per year.

The present value (principal) can be calculated by the formula given below:

Principal=Table factor×Compound amount

In present value table 11-2, the table factor is the intersection of the rate-per-period column and the number-of-periods row is the present value of $1 at compound interest. When the number of periods of an investment is greater than the number of periods provided by the present value table, then compute a new table factor by following below steps: Step 1. For the defined interest rate per period, evaluate the two table factors that represent half, or values as close as possible to half, of the periods required. Step 2. Multiply the two table factors from step 1 to form the new factor. Step 3. Round the new factor to five decimal places. Calculation: Consider the compound amount$12,000 made for 10 year at 16% interest compounded quarterly and solve as shown below:

Since, the variables-compound amount, time period (years), nominal rate and interest compounded are given; therefore, the compounding period can be calculated as below:

Compounding periods(n)=Term of investments(
