1)

This is the formula you would use to figure that out:

FV = PV [1 + R]^N

FV = 24,000 [1 + 0.08]^3

FV = 24,000 [1.08]^3

FV = 24,000 x 1.259712

**FV =$30,233.09 - This is the value of investment in 3 years.**

Use exact same formula above to calculate the rest of them.

=$38,084.98 - This is the value after 6 years.

=$47,976.11 - This is the value after 9 years.

=$60,436.08 - This is the value after 12 years.

2)

This is the formula you would use to calculate that:

PV = FV / [1 + R]^N

PV =120,000 / [1 + 0.03]^5

PV =120,000 / [1.03]^5

PV =120,000 / 1.1592740743

**PV =$103,513.05 - This is the PV of $120,000 @ 3% over 5 years.**

Use exact same formula above to calculate the rest of them:

=$89,670.98 - This is the PV @ 6% over 5 years.

=$77,991.77 - This is the PV @ 9% over 5 years.

=$68,091.22 - This is the PV @12% over 5 years.
