Find the amount to be paid of a present value of 15,000 payable every three months for 10years, if the money is worth 5% compounded quarterly.
This, I believe is an ordinary annuity
PV = C * [ 1 - (1+i)-n ] / i
PV = present value C = 15 000 i = interest per period = .05/4 n = periods = 4 x 10 = 40
pluggiing in these numbers shows PV = ~ $ 469904
Hi EP: I think this is an ordinary annuity, with a PV of $15,000, from which you would receive quarterly payments @ 5% comp. quarterly for 10 x 4 ==40 quarters. If that is right, then the quarterly payments I calculate come to ==$478.82 for 10 years, or 40 quarters. However, the question is vey vague!
