Textbook Problem

Solve the following word problems by using table 11-2.

How much must be invested today at 6% compounded quarterly to have $8,000 in 3 years?

To determine

**To calculate:** The present value (principal) that has total interest amount

Explanation

**Given information:**

The quarterly interest rate is

**Formula used:**

Compounding period can be calculated by formula given below:

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,

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

In Present value table, the table factor is the intersection of the rate-per-period column and the number-of-periods row is the present value of

**Calculation:**

Consider the compound amount

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