1. (A nice inheritance) Use the "72 rule". Years = 1994-1776 = 218 years. (a) i = 3.3%. Years required for inheritance to double = Zf = 8 :'=!21.8. Times doubled= Hi = 10 times. \$1 invested in 1776 is worth 210 :'=!\$1,000 today. (b) i = 6.6%. Years required to double = ~ :'=!10.9. Times doubled = ~ times. \$1 invested in 1776 is worth 220 :'=!\$1, 000, 000 today. 2. (The 72 rule) Using (1 + r)n = 2 gives nIn (1 +r) In2 = 0.69. We have nr :'=!0.69 and thus n :'=!~

= 20

= In2. Using In (1 + r) :'=!r and :'=!PI.

Using instead In(1 + r) :'=!r- !r2 = r(1 -!r) we have nIn(1 + r) = In2 or equivalently nr :'=!~. For r :'=!0.08, we have (1 -r /2)-1 :'=!1.042. Therefore, n:'=! !(0.069)(1.042) r
