Expert's answer

a)Time value of money concept state that value of money in future would not be same that in present. The money will discount at over the time.

In order calculate value of money today, we need to use the present value formula

Present value =Future Value/(1+interest rate)number of years 

Future value =572750

Interest rate =10%

Number of years =20

"Present \\space Value =572750\/(1+0.10)^{20}\\\\\n\n =\\frac{572750}{6.7275}\\\\\n\n =85135.64"

Hence money need to invest today is 85135.64

We applied here the present value concept here in which future money is discounted at appropriate rat


A=final amount

P=initial principal balance

i=interest rate

nt=number of times interest applied per time period

"A=P(1+\\frac{r}{n})^{nt}\\\\A=20000(1+\\frac{0.008}{12})^{12}\\\\=\\$ 20160.59"

Compounding concept determine what will we get tomorrow if we invest a certain sum. Future value of money tables the concept
