According to the formula of compound interest FV =PV*(1 + i)^n, where FV - future value, PV - present value, i - interest rate, n
- number of years.
Inour case, FV = PV + 6000, so we get:
PV+ 6000 = PV*1.07^5
1.4026PV- PV = 6000
0.4026PV= 6000
PV= 6000/0.4026 = \$14,904.92
We advice John to proceed with this transaction, as he will gain the significant profit. But if he has another more attractive offer, it&#039;ll be better not to proceed with this.
