0, It is convenient to have standard tables of annuity and accumulation values at various rates of interest. 6 removes the need to tabulate both sn and €sn . Such tables can be found later in this book. 11) The reader should verify these relationships algebraically and by general reasoning. 1 Working in years, evaluate a10 , a€10 , s10 , and s€10 for i ¼ 2% per annum and i ¼5% per annum. 11 and also confirm you answers using standard tables. 11 at 2%. Similarly for 5%. Solution Standard tables give values of a10 and s10 equal to those calculated at each i.
7) of cash flow time of cash flow vðtÞ As we shall see later in this book, these results are extremely useful in practical examples. 1 A businessman is owed the following amounts: £1,000 on 1 January 2013, £2,500 on 1 January 2014, and £3,000 on 1 July 2014. 06 per annum, find the value of these payments on (a) 1 January 2011, (b) 1 March 2012. Solution (a) Let time be measured in years from 1 January 2011. The value of the debts at that date is, by Eq. 1, 1;000v ð2Þ þ 2;500vð3Þ þ 3;000v ð3:5Þ ¼ 1;000expðÀ 0:12Þ þ 2;500expðÀ 0:18Þ þ 3;000expðÀ 0:21Þ ¼ £5;406:85 (b) The value of the same debts at 1 March 2012 is found by advancing the present value forwards by 14 months, by Eq.
If d ¼ 0 (or, equivalently, i ¼ 0), an is, of course, equal to n. 3. In Chapter 4 we shall show that, with the appropriate deﬁnition of an for non-integral n, Eq. 4 is valid for all non-negative n. Since Eq. , replacing i with d, thereby transforming Eq. 1 into Eq. 1. Formulae like Eq. 4 and the equivalent expressions that link an and €an through an effective substitution of the denominators are very useful when transferring between evaluations of the present values deﬁned under payments made in arrears, advance or continuously.
