2, which is explained as follows. 2. Ordinary Annuity—Spreadsheet Format Period 1 2 3 4 5 Period’s Beginning Principal 0 P1 P2 P3 P4 Interest 0 iP1 iP2 iP3 iP4 Period’s End Investment Amount P 0 + 0 + P = P1 P P1 + iP1 + P = P2 P P2 + iP2 + P = P3 P P3 + iP3 + P = P4 P P4 + iP4 + P = P5 At the end of period 1 we have made 1 payment, and our future value is P1 = P. At the end of period 2 we have made 2 payments, and our future value is P2 = P1 (1 + i) + P = P (1 + i) + P. At the end of period 3 we have made 3 payments, and our future value is P3 = P2 (1 + i) + P = P (1 + i)2 + P (1 + i) + P.

D) Show that one solution of this equation is i = 0. 5) on p. 29. 21. What are the interest rates compounded (a) monthly, (b) semi-annually, and (c) annually that yield the same return as an investment earning 6% interest compounded continuously? 22. 5% a year. 10% a year. 5% a year. 10% a year. 71, although not necessarily in that order. 51.

6)? 318 is another solution. But this solution does not satisfy 1 + i > 0, so we reject it. 0339 is the only acceptable solution? 35. 7) then we see that this is a polynomial equation of degree 12 in (1+i). 7) to have 12 solutions! In fact, it has only one real solution that satisfies 1 + i > 0, which we show shortly. To show this, we turn to the general case, where we have the following net cash flows: 0 C0 Period Cash Flow 1 C1 2 C2 ··· ··· n−1 Cn−1 n , Cn where Ck (k = 0, 1, . . , n) are positive, negative, or zero.
