**CFA Practice Question**

What is the future value of the following regular (ordinary, deferred) annuity?

Payment frequency = annual, at the end of each year

Number of payments = 7

Interest rate = 4% per year

B. $2,014.07

C. $2,590.80

Payment amount = $255

Payment frequency = annual, at the end of each year

Number of payments = 7

Interest rate = 4% per year

A. $1,856.40

B. $2,014.07

C. $2,590.80

Correct Answer: B

(Or use the formula to calculate.)

FV = 255(1.04)

^{6}+ 255(1.04)^{5}+ 255(1.04)^{4}+ ... + 255(1.04)^{1}+ 255(1.04)^{0}= $2,014.07(Or use the formula to calculate.)

Using BA II Set the period to END (as this is a regular annuity) -255 PMT, 7 N, 4 I/Y,CPT FV = 2,014.07 |
