2011 | 18,000 | 10,600 |

Expert Solution

To determine

Identify the mutual fund that performs better.

**Calculation:**

In the Stivers mutual fund, $10,000 is invested at the beginning of 2004 and in Trippi mutual fund, $5,000 is invested at the beginning of 2004. The given table represents the value of each investment at the end of each subsequent year.

The geometric mean is often used for finding the mean growth rate.

The mean growth factor over these eight periods is:

The growing factor of each year can be obtained by dividing the end of year by the previous year value.

The growth factor of the year 2004 can be obtained as follows:

Similarly the growth actor for remaining years can be obtained as shown in the table given below:

Year | Stivers | Trippi | ||

End of Year Value | Growth Factor | End of Year Value | Growth Factor | |

2004 | $11,000 | 1.100 | $5,600 | 1.120 |

2005 | $12,000 | 1.091 | $6,300 | 1.125 |

2006 | $13,000 | 1.083 | $6,900 | 1.095 |

2007 | $14,000 | 1.077 | $7,600 | 1.101 |

2008 | $15,000 | 1.071 | $8,500 | 1.118 |

2009 | $16,000 | 1.067 | $9,200 | 1.082 |

2010 | $17,000 | 1.063 | $9,900 | 1.076 |

2011 | $18,000 | 1.059 | $10,600 | 1.071 |

*For the Stivers mutual fund:*

The balance at the end of the year 2011 is the initial investment times the product of all 8 growth factors.
