( b) 15 months from now? 5 quarters  (c) 27 months from now? 9 quarters   (d) 36 months from now?   12 quarters

interest rate = 8.4/4 =2.1% = 0.021 every 3 months

I am assuming that the debt of \$5500 is due in 27 months.  Its monetary value is not that great yet !

\(FV=PV(1+r)^n\\ PV=FV(1+r)^{-n}\\ PV=5500(1.021)^{-9}\)

5500*(1.021)^-9 = 4561.745063099648344

So if \$5500 is due in 27 months its current value is  \$4561.75

( b) 15 months from now? 5 quarters

FV(15months)= 4561.75*1.021^5

4561.75*1.021^5 = \$5061.28

(c) 27 months from now? 9 quarters

FV(15months)= \$5500  that was given in the question

check:

FV(27months)=4561.75*1.021^9

4561.75*1.021^9 = \$5500.0059523168345708    near enough :)

(d) 36 months from now?   12 quarters

FV(36months)=4561.75*1.021^12

4561.75*1.021^12 = \$5853.83
