        If money is worth 10% compounded annually, $1,100 due one year from today is equivalent to $1,000 today.
        If a single sum is due on December 31, 2010, the present value of that sum decreases as the date draws closer to December 31, 2010.


3. If the interest rate is 10%, the factor for the future value of annuity due of 1 for n = 5, i = 10% is equal to the factor for the future value of an ordinary annuity of 1 for n = 5, i = 10%
        plus 1.10.
        minus 1.10.
        multiplied by 1.10.
        divided by 1.10.


4. Which statement is false?
        The factor for the future value of an annuity due is found by multiplying the ordinary annuity table value by one plus the interest rate.
        The factor for the present value of an annuity due is found by multiplying the ordinary annuity table value by one minus the interest rate.
        The factor for the future value of an annuity due is found by subtracting 1.00000 from the ordinary annuity table value for one more period.
        The factor for the present value of an annuity due is found by adding 1.00000 to the ordinary annuity table value for one less period.


5. Ed Sloan wants to withdraw $20,000 (including principal) from an investment fund at the end of each year for five years. How should he compute his required initial investment at the beginning of the first year if the fund earns 10% compounded annually?
        $20,000 times the future value of a 5-year, 10% ordinary annuity of 1.
        $20,000 divided by the future value of a 5-year, 10% ordinary annuity of 1.
        $20,000 times the present value of a 5-year, 10% ordinary annuity of 1.
        $20,000 divided by the present value of a 5-year, 10% ordinary annuity of 1.


6. Ann Ruth wants to invest a certain sum of money at the end of each year for five years. The investment will earn 6% compounded annually. At the end of five years, she will need a total of $40,000 accumulated. How should she compute her required annual investment?
        $40,000 times the future value of a 5-year, 6% ordinary annuity of 1.
        $40,000 divided by the future value of a 5-year, 6% ordinary annuity of 1.
        $40,000 times the present value of a 5-year, 6% ordinary annuity of 1.
        $40,000 divided by the present value of a 5-year, 6% ordinary annuity of 1.


7. An accountant wishes to find the present value of an annuity of $1 payable at the beginning of each period at 10% for eight periods. The accountant has only one present value table which shows the present value of an annuity of $1 payable at the end of each period. To compute the present value, the accountant would use the present value factor in the 10% column for
        seven periods.
        eight periods and multiply by (1 + .10).
        eight periods.
        nine periods and multiply by (1 - .10).


8. If an annuity due and an ordinary annuity have the same number of equal payments and the same interest rates, then
        the present value of the annuity due is less than the present value of the ordinary annuity.
        the present value of the annuity due is greater than the present value of the ordinary annuity.
        the future value of the annuity due is equal to the future value of the ordinary annuity.
        the future value of the annuity due is less than the future value of the ordinary annuity.


9. In accounting for compensated absences, the difference between vested rights and accumulated rights is
