Tutorial Problems And Worked Out Problems



1. Simple Interest


Illustration: 1


If you invest Rs 10,000 (P0) in a bank at simple interest of 7% (i) per annum, what will be the amount at the end of three (n) years?




Future Value, FVn = P0 + SI = P0 + P0(i)(n) = 10,000 + 10,000(0.07)(3) = 12,100


Illustration 2:


2,000 (P0) is deposited in a bank for two (n) years at simple interest of 6% (i). How much will be the balance at the end of 2 years?




Required balance is given by


FVn = P0 + P0(i)(n) = 2,000 + 2000 (0.06)( 2) = 2,000 + 240 = ` 2,240.


Illustration 3:


Find the rate of interest if the amount owed after 6 (n) months is ` 1,050 (A), borrowed amount being ` 1,000 (P0).




We know


FVn = P0 + P0(i)(n)


i.e. 1,050 = 1,000 + 1,000(i)(6/12) Or 1,050-1,000 = 500(i) Therefore (i) = 50/500 = 0.10

i.e. (i) = 10%


Compound Interest


Illustration 4: Determine the compound interest for an investment of Rs 7,500 at 6 % compounded half- yearly. Given that (1+i) n for i = 0.03 and n = 12 is 1.42576.


i = 6 / 2×100        = 0 03,


n = 6 × 2 = 12, P = 1,000


Compound Amount = 7,500(1+0.03)12 = 7,500 × 1.42576 = 10,693.20 Compound Interest = 10,693.20 – 7,500 = 3,193.20


Illustration 5: 2,000 is invested at annual rate of interest of 10%. What is the amount after 2 years if the compounding is done?




(b) Semi annually?


(c) Monthly?


(d) Daily?


Ans wer:


(a) The annual compounding is given by:



FV2 = P (1 + i) n, n being 2, i being 10/100 = 0.1 and P being 2000


(b) For semiannual compounding n = 2 × 2 = 4, i = 0.1/2 = 0.05


FV4 = 2,000 (1 + 0.05)4 = 2,000 × 1.2155 = 2,431


(c) For monthly compounding, n = 12 × 2 = 24, i = 0.1/12 = 0.00833 FV24 = 2,000 (1.00833)24 = 2,000 × 1.22029 = 2440.58


(d) For daily compounding, n = 365 × 2 = 730, i = 0.1/ (365) = 0.00027 FV730 = 2,000 (1.00027)730 = 2,000 × 1.22135 = 2,442.70


FV4 = 2,000 (1 + 0.05)4 = 2,000 × 1.2155 =2,431


Effective Rate of Interest


It is the actual equivalent annual rate of interest at which an investment grows in value when interest is credited more often than once a year. If interest is paid m times in a year it can be found by calculating:


Ei = (1+ i/m) m -1




Illustration 6: If the interest is 10% payable quarterly, find the effective rate of interest.




E = (1+ 0.1/4) 4 -1 = 0.1038 or 10.38%


Present Value


Illustration 7: What is the present value of Re. 1 to be received after 2 years compounded annually at 10%?




Here FV n = 1, i = 0.1


Required Present Value = FV n (1+i) −n


FV n    =

1 / (1.1) 2 = 1 / 1.21

= 0.8264

= Re. 0.83


Thus, Re. 0.83 shall grow to Re. 1 after 2 years at 10% compounded annually.


Illustration 8. Future Value of A Series of Payments : -


Calculate the Future value at the end of 5 years of the following series of payment at 10% rate of interest.



R1 = Rs.1000 at the end of 1st year 

R2 = Rs.2000 at the end of 2nd year. 

R3 = Rs.3000 at the end of 3rd year. 

R4 = Rs.2000 at the end of 4st year. 

R5 = Rs. 1500 at the end of 5t h year

Vn  = R1(1+i)n-1 + R2(1+i)n-2 + R3 (1+i)n-3 + R4 (1+i)n-4 + Rn


=   1000(1+.10)5-1 + 2000(1+.10)5-2 + 3000(1+.10)5-3 + 2000(1+.10)5-4 + 1500


=   1000(1.10)4 + 2000(1.10)3 + 3000(1.10)2 + 2000(1.10)1  + 1500


=     1000(1.464)+2000(1.3310)+3000(1.21) +2000(1.10) +1500


= 1464 + 2662 +3630 +2200+1500


Vn = 11456


Another Method: -


Using Compounding Factor Table

Future value of the end of 5 years = 11456


Compound Value of Annuity


Mr. A deposits Rs. 1000 at the end of every year, for a 4 years and the deposits earnscompound interest at 10% per annum. Determine how much money he will have at the end of 4 years.



R ( 1+i) n-1  + (1+i) n-2 + ……… + 1)

1000 ( 1+.10) 4-1 + (1+.10) 4-2 +(1+.10)4-3 + 1) 1000 ( 1+.10) 3 + (1+.10) 2 +(1+.10)1 + 1) 1000 ( 1.3310+1.2100+1.1000+ 1) 1000(4.6410)




a)     Using compounding Factor table Vn = ® (ACFin)


=     1000 x 4.641

=     4641


Compound Value of Annuity Due :


1.     Mr. X deposits Rs. 5000 at beginning of each year of 5 years in a bank and the deposit earns a compound interest at 8% per annum. Determine how many money be will have at the end of 5 years.


=(R )(( 1+i) n  + (1+i) n-1 + ……… + (1+i)1)


= 5000[(1+.08)5 + (1+.08)5-1+ (1+.08)5-2+(1+.08)5-3 +(1+.08)1]

= 5000[(1+.08)5 + (1+.08)4+ (1+.08)3+ (1+.08)2 +(1+.08)1]

= 5000[(1.0800)5+ (1.0800)4+ (1.0800)3+(1.0800)2+(1.0800)1]

= 5000(1.4693+1.3605+1.2597+1.664+1.0800)

= 5000(6.3359) = 31679.5

b) Using compounding factor table

Vn= ® (ACFin) (1+P)

= 5000x5.867 (1+.08) = 5000 x 5.867 (1.08) = 31681




B. Discount (or) present value technique: -


You have an opportunity to buy a debenture today and you will get back Rs, 1000 after one year. What will you be willing to pay for the debenture today if your time performance for money is 10% per annum?


Present value Vo = Future value (Vn) x DFin


= 1000 x 0.90909


= 909.0900


Present Value Series of Payment


Calculate present value of the following cash flows assuming a discount rate of 10%


Total present value of cash flow = 23604


Present Value of an Annuity


1. Mr. X has to receive Rs. 2000 per year for 5 years. Calculate present value of equity assuming that he can earn interest on his investment at10% P.A.


Vo = (R) (ADFin)

= 2000 x 3.791

= 7582


Present Value of an Annuity Due:-


1. Mr. A has to receive Rs. 1000 at the beginning of each year for 5 years. Calculate the present value of an annuity due assuming 10% rate of interest.


Vo = (1000) (3.791) (1+-10)

= 1000 x 3.791 (1.10)


= 4170


Present Value of an Annuity Growing at Constant Rates


1. Mr. X has rented out a portion of his house for 4 years at an annual rent Rs. 6000 units with the stipulation that rent will increase by 10% every year. If the required rate of return is 15%. What is the present value of the expected series of Rent?


a)  Calculate  the series of payment of rent


Valuation Of Bonds




Let us assume the face value of the bond is $1,000 (maturity value $1,000). The bond has a 10% coupon rate payable semi-annually and the yield to maturity (return) is 9%. The bond matures in 5 years period from now. What is the value of the bond?


Interest 1 till 10 = $50 per semi-annual period. ($100 annually) n=10 because 5 years x 2 payments per period.


Yield to maturity = 9%, therefore, semi-annual YTM (return) =9/2 = 4.5% or 0.045 Solving for the above equation, we get

Bond price = $1,040 (rounded)


Payback period




If the cash flows are equivalent, how the payback period is to be calculated?


The cost of the project is Rs.1,00,000. The annual earnings of the project is Rs.20,000. Calculate the payback period.


Payback period = Average Annual Earnings / Initial Investment = 1,00,000 / 20,000 = 5 years


It is obviously understood that, Rs.20,000 of annual earnings (cash inflows) requires 5 years time period to get back the original volume of the investment.




If the cash flows are not equivalent, how the payback period is to be calculated?

The cost of the project  is Rs.1,00,000. The annual earnings of the project are as


·        The ultimate aim of determining the cumulative cash inflows to find out how many number o f years taken by the firm to recover the initial investment.


The next step under this method is to determine the cumulative cash flows

The uncollected portion of the investment is Rs,10,000. This Rs.10,000 is collected from the 4th year Net income / cash inflows of the enterprise. During the 4th year the total earnings amounted Rs.20,000 but the amount required to recover is only Rs.10,000. For earning Rs.20,000 one full year is required but the amount required to collect it back is amounted Rs.10,000. How many months the firm may require to collect Rs.10,000 out of the entire earnings Rs.20,000.


v        Payback period consists of two different components


v   Payback period for the major portion of the investment collection in full course - E.g.: 3 years


v   Payback period for the left /uncollected portion of the investment


v   For the second category 0.5 years


v   = 10000/20000 = 0.5 years

Total payback period= 3 Years +.5 year = 3.5 years




A project costs Rs.2,00,000 and yields and an annual cash inflow of Rs.40,000 for 7 years. Calculate payback period

First step is identify the nature of the annual cash inflows

In this problem, the annual cash inflows are equivalent throughout life period of the



Pay Back Period = 2,00,000/ 40,000 = 5years




Calculate the payback period for a project which requires a cash outlay of Rs.20,000 and generates cash inflows of Rs 4,000 Rs.8,000 Rs. 6,000 and Rs. 4,000 in the first, second, third, and fourth year respectively


First step is to identify the nature of the cash inflows The cash inflows are not equivalent/constant


v   Cost of the project is to be recovered Rs.20,000. The project takes 3 full year‘s time period to recover the major portion of the initial investment which amounted Rs.18,000 out of Rs.20,000


v   The remaining amount of the initial investment is recovered only during the fourth year.


v   The left portion Rs.2,000 has to be recovered only from the fourth year cash inflows of Rs.4,000.


v   Pay Back Period = Pay Back period of the major portion + Pa y Back period of the remaining portion

v   Pay Back period of the major portion = 3 years

Illustration  A  project  cost  Rs.       500000  and  yield  annually  a  profit  Rs.  80000,  after depreciation at 12% per annum but before tax 50%.     Calculate payback period. 

Profit before tax   =       80000         




Calculate post payback profitability index. Initial outlay Rs. 50000, Annual cash flow(after tax before depreciation) Rs. 10000, Estimated life 8 years.

Discounted payback period




Calculate discounted payback period from the information given below.


Cost of project = Rs. 600000

Life of project = 5 years

Annual cash inflows Rs. 200000 for each year


Cutoff rate 10%


v   If the required rate of return is 10% which project should be undertaken?


v   Average Rate of Return = Original Investment / Average Annual Income X100


v   The first step is to find out the average annual income of the two different projects X and Y


v   Average Annual Income Total income throughout the Project / Life of the Project


v   Average Annual Income (Project X) = Rs. 12,000 / 4 years = Rs. 3,000


v   Average Annual Income (Project Y) = Rs. 20,000 / 5 years = Rs. 4,000


v   The next step is to find out the Average rate of return:


v   Average rate of return (Project X) = Rs. 3,000 / Rs.40,000 X100 =7.5%


v   Average rate of return (Project Y) = Rs.5,000/ Rs. 60,000 X 100 = 8.33%


v   Both the projects are lesser than the given required rate of return. These two projects are not advisable to invest only due to lesser accounting rate of return.


Net present value method(NPV) 


Calculate the NPV of 2 projects and suggest which of 2 projects should be accepted assuming a discount rate 10%

NPV = PV cash of inflow - PV of cash outflows = 24224 - 20000 NPV = 4224


Project Y

NPV = PV of cash inflow  - PV of cash outflows

NPV = 34724 – 30000       

NPV = 4724    


NPV of project y is higher than the NPV of project x. Hence, it is suggested that project y should be selected.




A company is considering investment in a project that cost Rs. 2 lakh the project that cost Rs. 2 lakh the project has an expected life of 5 years and zero solvage (scrap) value. The company uses straight line method of depreciation (40,000),Tax Rate is 40%

You are require to calculate the Net present value @ 10 % and advice the company




NPV = PV of cash inflow – PV of cash outflow


= 251724 – 200000


=       51724
