Money is worth more as time progresses
  • An amount received today is worth more than that same amount received in the future.
The future value of a dollar and the present value of a dollar are based on the interest rate earned and how many years and compounding times per year are involved.
The time value of money is all about knowing which opportunity creates the maximum value over a given period of time.
  • Simply refers to interest earning interest
  • Significantly influences how fast a dollar amount grows
  • May be computed annually or more frequently, such as quarterly, monthly, daily, or continually
$1,000 x 10% = $100 interest earned
  • Add $1000 principle to $100 interest
  • Balance at end of first year is $1,100
  • Shortcut:

$1,000 x 1.10 = $1,100 Thus,

Present value (1 + interest rate) = Future Value

  • Check out a FVIF table and get factor for 1 year and 10% interest. Multiply this by the principle (PV) amount.

Thus the FV = PV x FVIF

if you left that 1 000 for two years what would it be worth
If you left that $1,000 for two years, what would it be worth?

$1,100 x 1.10 = $ 1,210

1,100 x 1.102 = $ 1,210 or

1, 000 x 1.21 = $ 1,210

  • Thus,

Future Value = PV x (1+ Interest rate)number years

  • PV = Current/earliest lump sum amount
  • FV = Ending/latest lump sum amount
  • I = Interest rate earned or paid
  • N = number of years/compounding periods
  • FVIF = future value interest factor = (1+I)N
FV = PV (1+I)n


Invest $500 for 4 years at 8 percent rate of return, how much will you have at the end of the fourth year?


Using Formula & Table

  • FV = PV (1 + I )n
  • FV = PV (FVIF i, n)
  • FV = $500 (1 + .08)4

= 500 (1.360)

FV = $ 680

With Calculator

$500 PV

4 n

8 I

FV = $680

If you are 20 years old and today invest $1000 dollars at 7%, what will your $1,000 be worth when you are 65 years old?
  • What is the future value of $1000 today if invested for 45 years at 7% annual interest rate?
  • PV = $1,000
  • i = 7 (the I/YR key)
  • N = 45
  • Solve for FV FV = $ 21,002
trouble shooting
Trouble Shooting
  • Only a few mistakes are common when computing time value of money problems on an HP 10B calculator.
  • Before starting a problem, make sure to check for the following:
    • How many payments is your calculator set on. To check, press shift (the yellow key), then C ALL (Input on the older HP calculator).
    • If a number other than what is needed appears, the number of payments may be changed by pressing the correct number of payments, then shift then PMT
trouble shooting cont
Trouble Shooting (cont.)
  • Check to see whether your calculator is in the “begin” mode. This means that payments are assumed to be made at the beginning of the time period rather than at the end of the time period, which is typically when payments are considered. If begin appears on your screen when it is not needed, press shift then BEG/END to change back to the end of the time period.
trouble shooting cont1
Trouble Shooting (cont.)
  • ALWAYS clear the machine by pressing SHIFT then C ALL. Never presume the bottom left “C” button clears everything. It doesn’t.
  • When using more than one compounding period per year (as in monthly payments on a 5-year loan), press the number of years, then SHIFT then N. (eg., 5 SHIFT N after having the number of payments set on 12 per year - - 12 SHIFT PMT)
  • To change the number of decimal places shown to say 6 places, press SHIFT, DISP (=) 6
If you wait until you are 35 years old and invest $1000 dollars at 7%, what will your $1,000 be worth when you are 65 years old?
  • $7,612
  • 1000 PV
  • 7 I
  • 30 N
  • FV = 7,612.25
  • Any of these variables may be computed just as easily as FV, such as a PV amount, an interest rate, or the number of years/payments, etc.
present value factors
Present Value Factors
  • The reciprocal of the Future Value Factors
  • PVIF = present value interest factor = 1/(1+I)N
present value example
Present Value Example

You will need $8,000 in 5 years to make a down payment on a house. How much would you need to put aside today to achieve your goal if you are earning 6% on your money?

  • $8,000 FV
  • 5 N
  • 6 I
  • PV = $5,978 , i.e., is needed today to have the $8,000 in five years.
  • If you invest $10,000 at 6% annual interest, how long will it take your money to double?
  • PV $10,000
  • FV 20,000
  • I 6
  • N 12 years (11.9 years)
rule of 72
Rule of 72
  • Any two numbers when multiplied together give you 72, will indicate the annual interest rate or the length of time until a sum doubles. For example,
  • 2 x 36 = 72 3 x 24 = 72
  • 4 x 18 = 72 6 x 12 = 72…..
  • Thus, at 2% it takes 36 years for a sum to double. Likewise, at 36%, it takes 2 years for a sum to double.
  • Eg., in the previous example, 6 x 12 = 72
  • Now, let’s consider making an investment or payment more than just one time.
  • Multiple payment situations are generically referred to as annuities.
  • Payments may be made annually (once a year) or more frequently
  • If payments are made more than once a year, be sure the calculator knows the payment frequency by pressing the number of payments per year, then SHIFT then PMT
practice problem

  • Hint: Solve for PMT rather than PV
  • Must set calculator on 12 payments per year

(press 12 shift pmt)

solution 15 vs 30 year notes
Solution: 15 vs. 30-year notes

15-year note

PMT $ 927.01


(PMT x 12 x 15)

= $ 166,862

30-year note

PMT $733.76


= $ 264,154

Difference: $97,688

  • The depleting or repaying of borrowed funds
  • Term also used to mean the “using up of an asset”
  • May be used to determine the balance of a loan at any time
amortization example
Amortization Example
  • On the 15 and 30-year mortgage examples, what would the ending balances be at the end of the 1st year of each loan?
  • HINT: Solve for the payment, then press shift AMORT (FV) then =. You will then see the time period for which the amortization will be given (eg., period 1-12 for the first year when there are monthly payments). Then press = to get the amount of interest paid during the first year; press = again to get the amount of principal paid, then = again to get the ending balance after the first year)
amortization answer
Amortization Answer

15- year loan

1st year’s payments:


Interest $7372.79

Principle $3,751.36

Balance $ 96,248.64

30-year loan

1st year’s payments:


Interest $ 7,969.80

Principle $ 835.37

Balance $ 99,164.63

ordinary annuity vs annuity due
Ordinary Annuity vs. Annuity Due
  • When payments are made on a regular (say, annual) basis into an investment, the timing of the payments is important.
  • If an amount is paid each year into a fund earning interest, the present or future value of that investment fund is determined by whether the payment is made at the beginning or the end of each year.
ordinary annuity vs annuity due cont
Ordinary Annuity vs. Annuity Due (cont.)
  • In a typical situation (ordinary annuity), the PV or FV is computed assuming the payments are all made at the end of each period.
  • 3 Questions:
ordinary vs annuity due examples
Ordinary vs. Annuity Due Examples
  • If payments of $1000 are made each year for 10 years at 12%, how much will be accumulated at the end of the 10th year?
  • How much would be accumulated if the payments were made at the beginning of each year?
  • How much would you pay today for an annuity that paid you $1000 a year for 10 years if interest rates were 12%? (assume payments at end of period)
