Calculate the maturity value of the note. (Compute the answer to 2 decimal places.)

Question 20 If the interest rate is 9.2% p.a. convertible 4 times a year, find the equivalent effective annual rate of interest. (as a %, to 2 decimal places) (Check that your calculated value of j1 is slightly larger than the j4 value of 9.2%.) Question 21 If the rate of interest is 7.3% p.a. effective, find the equivalent nominal rate of interest p.a. if it were payable 4 times a year. (as a %, to 2 decimal places) (j4 is required and not the quarterly rate. Check that your calculated value of j4 is slightly smaller than the j1 value of 7.3%.) Question 22 If the interest rate is 5.6% p.a. convertible 2 times a year, find the equivalent nominal rate of interest p.a. if it were payable 12 times a year. (as a %, to 2 decimal places) (j12 is required and not the monthly rate. Check that your calculated value of j12 is slightly smaller than the j2 value of 5.6%.) Question 23 How long does it take for money to double itself at the interest rate i4 =14% i.e. How long till $100 accumulates to $200 at this rate? give your answer in years, to 4 decimal places Question 24 Q5 A sum of $5,000 is invested for 8 years.
