You can determine the number of payments (n) in an ordinary annuity, if you know the amount of each payment, the present value of the annuity, and the __________
interest rate.

11.

Company X received a promissory note from Corp Y. The note does not specify any interest and it requires Corp Y to pay $3,000 at the end of each year for four years. Which interest rate should Company X use to discount the note receivable to its present value?

A present value of an ordinary annuity table is used to compute the present value of a five-year ordinary annuity with a payment occurring every three months. If the company has a time value of money of 12% per year, compounded quarterly, the number of periods (n) to be used in the calculation is

__________**20.**

__________**3%.**

12% divided by 4 quarters per year

. 12% divided by 4 quarters per year

13.

A present value of an ordinary annuity (PVOA) table is used to compute the amount of a single deposit to be made today into an account earning interest of 6% per year compounded monthly. The deposit must be sufficient to cover a withdrawal of an identical amount each month for 10 years. At the end of the 10 years, the balance in the account should be $0. When using the PVOA Table to solve for the amount needed (the present value), the number of periods (n) is

__________**120.**

10 years times 12 months per year

and the interest rate per period is 10 years times 12 months per year

__________**0.5%.**

6% divided by 12 months per year
