Description

Note: In addition to your solution to each computational problem, you must show the supporting work leading to your solution to receive credit for your answer.

  • Question 1:
    • Proficient-level: Would you rather have a savings account that paid interest compounded on a monthly basis, or one that compounded interest on an annual basis? Why?
    • Distinguished-level: State why a borrower would prefer more, or less, frequent compounding periods.
  • Question 2:
    • Proficient-level: What is an amortization schedule, and what are some of its uses?
    • Distinguished-level: Explain why more interest is incurred at the beginning of the amortization period than at the end of the amortization period.
  • Question 3:
    • Proficient-level: "The interest on your home mortgage is tax deductible. Why are the early years of the mortgage more helpful in reducing taxes than in the later years?" (Cornett, Adair, & Nofsinger, 2016, p. 123).
    • Distinguished-level: Explain why the tax benefit of interest is even larger for longer-term loans?
  • Question 4:
    • Proficient-level: What is the difference between an ordinary annuity and an annuity due?
    • Distinguished-level: Explain why the future value of an annuity due is greater than the future value of an ordinary annuity.
  • Question 5:
    • Proficient-level: "What is the future value of a $900 annuity payment over five years if interest rates are 9 percent?" (Cornett, Adair, & Nofsinger, 2016).
      • Recalculate the future value at 8 percent interest, and again, at 10 percent interest.
    • Distinguished-level: Describe the relationship between changes in interest rates and the ensuing changes in future values.
  • Question 6:
    • Proficient-level: "What is the present value of a $700 annuity payment over six years if interest rates are 10 percent?" (Cornett, Adair, & Nofsinger, 2016, p. 123).
      • Recalculate the present value at 9 percent interest, and again, at 11 percent interest.
    • Distinguished-level: Describe the relationship between changes in interest rates and the ensuing changes in present values.
