question
People borrow money because they expect...
their purchases to give them the satisfaction in the future that compensates them for the interest payments charged on them
question
A payment that your bank credits to your account in one year is known as a:
Future Value
question
How are future values affected by changes in interest rates?
The higher the interest rate, the largger the future value will be.
question
How are present values affected by changes in interest rates?
The lower the interest rate, the larger the present value will be.
question
We call the process of earning interest on both the original deposit and on the earlier interest payments:
compounding
question
Interest earned on the original deposit is called:
simple interest
question
The process of figuring out how much an amount that you expect to receive in the future is worth today is called:
discounting
question
The interest rate, i, which we use to calculate present value, is often referred to as the:
discount rate
question
Who is credited with popularizing the Rule of 72?
Albert Einstein
question
The Rule of 72 is a simple math approximation for:
The number of years required to double an investment.
question
With regard to money deposited in a bank, future values are:
larger than present values
question
Earnings just one percent more in interest rate every year results in much higher future values over time, and:
time has the same effect on future values over time
question
A dollar paid (or received) in the future is:
not worth as much as a dollar today
question
Because we compute interest rates using beginning-period value of an investment, investments that feature gains and losses
may become asymmetric between gains and losses
question
When computing the rate of return from selling an investment, the number of years between the present and future cash flows is an important factor in determining
the annual rate earned
question
When calculating the number of years needed to grow an investment to a specific amount of money:
the higher the interest rate the shorter the time period needed to achieve the growth
question
Moving cash flows from one point in time to another requires us to use
both present and future value equations
question
All TVM equations that you will encounter only require figuring out what is unknown in the situation and:
solving for that one unknown factor
question
The longer the money can earn interest,
the greater the compounding effect
question
When saving for future expenditures, we add the ______________ of contributions over time to see what the total will be worth at some point in time>
Future value
question
When moving from the left to the right of a time line, we are using:
compound interest to calculate future values
question
Level sets of frequent, consistent cash flows are called
annuities
question
The length of time of the annuity is very important in accumulating wealth within an annuity. What other factor also has this effect?
interest rate for compounding
question
In order to discount multiple as flows to the present, one would use
the appropriate discount rate
question
Your credit rating and current economic conditions will determine the
interest rate that a lender will offer
question
When interest rates are lower, borrowers can
borrow more money
question
The present value of annuity payments made far into the future are
worth very little today
question
While the future value will increase as computing frequency increases, the size of each increase in the future value:
diminishes as compounding frequencies increase
question
Compounding monthly versus annually causes the interest rate to be effectively higher, and thus the future value
grows
question
The simple form of an annualized interest rate is called the annual percentage rate (APR). The effective annual rate (EAR) is a
more accurate measure of the interest rate paid for monthly compounding.
question
You can more easily evaluate investment opportunities for both businesses and individual applications if you can compute
the implied rate of return in a series of cash flows
