The;mortgage has a stated (or nominal) interest rate of 10 percent, but it calls;for payments every 6 months, beginning on June 30, and the mortgage is to be;amortized over 20 years. Now, one year later, your aunt must file Schedule B of;her tax return with the IRS informing them of the interest that was included in;the two payments made during the year.

Your friend says;she can get you some of these securities at a cost of $960 each. Your money is;now invested in a bank that pays an 4 percent nominal (quoted) interest rate;but with quarterly compounding. You regard the securities as being just as;safe, and as liquid, as your bank deposit, so your required effective annual;rate of return on the securities is the same as that on your bank deposit.

Except in;situations where compounding occurs annually, the periodic interest rate;exceeds the nominal interest rate.;B. b. The effective;annual rate always exceeds the nominal rate, no matter how few or many;compounding periods occur each year.;C. c. If compounding;occurs more frequently than once a year, and if payments are made at times;other than at the end of compounding periods, it is impossible to determine;present or future values, even with a financial calculator. The reason is that;under these conditions, the basic assumptions of discounted cash flow analysis;are not met.;D. d. Assume that;compounding occurs quarterly, that the nominal interest rate is 8 percent, and;that you need to find the present value of $ 1,000 due 6 months from today. You;could get the correct answer by discounting the $ 1,000 at 2 percent for 2;periods.;E. e. Statements a;b, c, and d are all false.
