Find the present value of $1347.89 in 3.5 years, 6.77% compounded semiannually.

What You Get
Let A = Future Value
Let P = Present Value
Let r = Rate
Let t = Time
Let n = Interest periods per year
 
Given: A = $1347.89
Given: r = 6.77%
Given: n = 2
Given: T = 3.5 YEARS
 
                 -nt
P = A(1+r/n)   
                       -2*3.5
P = 1347.89(1+0.0677/2)      
 
                      -7
P = 1347.89(1+0.03385)  

P = $1,067.71                     
	
Solution: P = $1,067.71
