In this case I will be investing \$100 and the assumption is that it will be compounded monthly. Investing that for 5 years earning 5% p.a interest. My interest percent monthly will be 0.05/12, and I would get .0042%. Number of payments that is 12 months times 5 years for the first scenario to get 60 total payments. My payment is as discussed earlier of \$100.00 a month. My formula would look like \$100(((1 +0042^60) -1)/.0042) and that totals \$6807.55. To get my interest it would be \$6807.55-6000=\$807.55 is total interest earned on the 5 years scenario. To get the interest I took my total amount subtracted the total payments to received that number. If I were to do this for 30 years I would take the same \$100 a month at 5%, this time though it will be a total of 360 payments since it is 30 years. My formula would be \$150(((1+.0042) ^360) -1)/.0042) = \$107653.67 is the total future value. To get the interest it would be \$107653.67 -36000=\$71653.67…show more content…
