Textbook Problem

For the following investments, calculate the present value (principal) and the compound interest. Use Table 11-2. Round your answer to the nearest cent.

Compound Amount $24,000 Term of Investment 6 years Nominal Rate(%) 4 Interest Compounded semiannually Present Value _ _ _ _ _ Compound Interest _ _ _ _ _

To determine

To calculate: The present value (principal) and the compound interest for an investment with compound amount $24,000 made for 3 years at 4% interest compounded semiannually using the table 11-2. Also, round your answer to the nearest cent.

Explanation

Given information:

An investment with compound amount $24,000 made for 6 years at 4% interest compounded semiannually.

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 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 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.

The compound interest can be calculated by the formula given below:

Compound interest=Compound amountPrincipal

Calculation:

Consider the compound amount $24,000 made for 6 years at 4% interest compounded semiannually 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(years)×
