Started out by continuing with annuity. The difference between ordinary annuity and annuity due is when the cash flow occurs. Ordinary annuity takes cashflow happening at the end of the year while annuity due takes cash flow occuring now so you get one more year of interest.

If you're doing problems and you round your answers for the interest rate then you will be penalized. What's funny about that is that the interest rate is not guaranteed to be the same for each year. But oh well, the problems are set in a fictional world.

Going onto loans. The principal value is the present value of repayments. So, the principal value can be used to calculate a fixed repayment amount. Paying a loan earlier is not beneficial because you have to sacrifice the interest that can be earnt on the money you will use to pay off the loan. However, if the interest rate between savings and borrowing is very different then it is better to pay off earlier.

*yawns*....Karen is obviously bored and sleepy again...the thing I hate about fin251 is that all these calculations are under the assumption that there is no tax which is just really really stupid since it makes you think it's really easy to invest a small sum of money and earn lots of money by making deposits....oh yes..they also use unbelievably high and unreal interest rates which do not change as apparently it is too advanced and goes beyond the scope of this course.

So back to me! The real interest rate is the nominal interest rate with the inflation rate subtracted from it.
