## Assume the same data as in Exercise 14-19, except that the current interest rate is 10%. Will the present value of your winnings using an interest rate of 10% be more than the present value of your winnings using an interest rate of 6%? Why or why not?

To determine

Calculate the increase or decrease in present value of winnings using an interest rate of 10% and 6%.

### Explanation of Solution

Present Value: The value of today’s amount expected to be paid or received in the future at a compound interest rate is called as present value.

The present value of winnings using an interest rate of 10% will be not more than the present value of winnings using an interest rate of 6% because the winnings are affected by the greater interest rate.

The present value of winnings using an interest rate of 10% is $36,867,420 ($6,000,000×6
