Practice the questions given in the worksheet on compound interest when interest is compounded halfyearly.
When the interest is compounded halfyearly (two times is a year) the,
A = P(1 + \(\frac{r}{2 × 100}\))\(^{n × 2}\)
i.e., the rate percent is divided by 2 and the number of years is multiplied by 2.
1. Find the compound interest and the amount on $ 4,000 at 4% per annum for 1 year when interest is compounded halfyearly.
2. Calculate the amount when sum of $ 4,800 is invested at 8% per annum for 4 years, the compound interest being compounded halfyearly.
Do not use mathematical tables. Use the necessary information from the following:
(1.08)\(^{4}\) = 1.3605; (1.04)\(^{8}\) = 1.3686
(1.08)\(^{8}\) = 1.8509; (1.04)\(^{4}\) = 1.1699
3. Calculate the compound interest at 8% per annum, compounded halfyearly, on $ 3,000 for 1\(\frac{1}{2}\) years.
4. Find the difference between the compound interest compounded yearly and halfyearly on $ 10,000 for 18 months at 10% per annum.
5. Find the compound interest and the amount on $ 5,000 at the annual interest rate of 8% for 2 years 6 months.
6. A man invests 4 10,000 in a bank for 1 ½ years at the interest rate of 7\(\frac{1}{2}\)% per annum, compounded annually. Find the amount he will receive at the end of the period.
7. Calculate the compound interest on $ 60,000 for 1 year, at 8% per annum, compounded halfyearly.
8. In what time will a sum of $ 8,000 become $ 9,261 at the interest rate of 10% per annum if the interest is compounded sixmonthly?
9. At 4% per annum, find the compound interest on a certain sum of money for 1 year, compounded sixmonthly, when the simple interest on this sum of money for 2 years at the rate of interest 4% per annum is $ 450.
10. Calculate the compound interest on $ 3500 at 6% per annum for 3 years, the interest being compounded halfyearly.
Do not use mathematical tables. Use the necessary information from the following:
(1.06)\(^{3}\) = 1.191016; (1.03)\(^{3}\) = 1.092727
(1.06)\(^{6}\) = 1.418519; (1.03)\(^{6}\) = 1.194052
