To determine

To calculate: The present value of an ordinary annuities, where annuity payment is $500, the frequency of payment is 3 months, the time duration is 314 years, the nominal rate of return is 6% and interest is compounded quarterly. Explanation Given Information: Annuity payment is$500, the frequency of payment is 3 months, the time duration is 314 years, the nominal rate of return is 6% and interest is compounded quarterly.

Formula used:

The formula for the calculation of present value of an ordinary annuities is as,

PV=Pmt×1(1+i)ni

Where, PV is present value, Pmt is annuity payment, i is interest rate per period and n is number of periods.

Calculation:

Consider the provided information,

Annuity payment is \$500, the frequency of payment is 3 months, the time duration is 3.25 years, the nominal rate of return is 6% and interest is compounded quarterly.

Now, the interest rate period is 1.5%(6%÷4 period per year).

The number of periods is 13(3.25 years×4 period per year)
