Often in personal finance we want to know what our $1 investment today will be,worth in 20 years. In business however, there is more concern with answering the,question, “If I receive $100 in 5 years, what is that worth today?” To answer this,question, modify the formula fv = pv*((1+i)^n) and use the reciprocal. Simply stated,,the reciprocal of a number is 1 divided by the number; the reciprocal of 10, for,example, is 1/10. In the formula above, we divide both sides by ((1+i)^n), which,creates a new formula where the fv is multiplied by the reciprocal of the original:,fv*(1/((1+i)^n))=pv. Select an interest rate and number of periods—be sure your,numbers are different from other students who already answered this question—to,calculate the present value of $100 received in the future. What would the value of,$100 in the future be today given the interest rate and number of periods you,selected?
