There are four questions. Interest rates are for one year. The exam is closed book with one note-
card. Unless specified otherwise, all answers must have the following:
1) Given quantities and objective
2) Cash flow diagram with values, interest, and periods.
3) Equation used to solve the problem. For example, (F/P, 6%, 4)
4) The value of the equation (e.g. F = 1.2625P) and how it was obtained (eg. Formula F = P(1
+ 0.06)4) or interest table (Appendix D) and interpolation or approximation (if any).
5) Answer highlighted.

1. Given the equation below, reconstruct the original cash flow diagram (50 points):

F = $1200(F/A, 10%, 5) + [$500 - $200(P/G, 10%, 5)](F/P, 10%, 5) + $500(F/P, 10%, 10)

2. 20 months ago, Brian Paul borrowed $200,000 from First American to start a microlamination
business. The loan had an interest rate of 12% compounded monthly and was to be repaid in 36
equal monthly installments over 3 years. Now, Brian’s business is doing well and he wants to
repay the entire loan in a single payment. How much must he pay? (50 points)
(There is an alternative solution using B20 = P – (A – Pi) (F/A, i, n))

4. Skip Rung deposits $5,000 in a savings account with OSU Federal Credit Union. The account
pays 6% interest compounded monthly. Three years later he deposits $4,000. Two years after the
$4,000 deposit, he makes another deposit in the amount of $2,500. Four years after the $2,500
deposit, half the amount is transferred to a fund that pays 8% interest, compounded quarterly.
How much money will be in each account 6 years after the transfer (100 points)?
