Textbook Problem

Solve the following exercises by using Table 12-2.

Run Sample is the grand prize winner in a college tuition essay contest awarded through a local organization’s scholarship fund. The winner receives $2,000 at the beginning of each year for the next 4 years. How much should be invested at 7% interest compounded annually to award the prize?

To determine

To calculate: The amount that should be invested by a local organization at 7% interest compounded annually to award the prize to the winner where the winner gets $2,000 in the beginning of each year for the next 4 years.

Explanation

Given Information:

Annuity payment to be received in the beginning of each year is $2,000, frequency of payment is 1 year, time duration is 4 years, nominal rate of return is 7% and interest is compounded annually.

Formula used:

The formula to compute the present value of annuity due is:

Present Value=Annuity due table factor×Annuity payment

Annuity due table factor=Ordinary annuity table factor+1.00000

Calculation:

Consider that annuity payment to be received in the beginning of each year is $2,000, frequency of payment is 1 year, time duration is 4 years, nominal rate of return is 7% and interest is compounded annually.

The rate period is 7%(7%÷1 period per year).

The number of periods is 3(4 years×1 period per year1)
