# Thread: accumulated and discounted value for a fractional period of time

1. ## accumulated and discounted value for a fractional period of time

The only question im not getting out of all my homework, all the other questions had close examples i could follow this ones a changeup couldnt figure it out

A note for $1200 dated Aug24,2005, is due with interest at j12=8.75% in 2 years. On June18,2006, the holder of the note has it discounted by a lender who charges 9.5% compounded quarterly. Calculate the proceeds and the compound discount. All help is appreciated 2.

All help is appreciated
due in 2 years = f = 1200(1 + .0875/12)^24 : IF j12 means compounded monthly

Jun 18/06 to Aug 24/07 = 4 quarters plus 67 days, so 4+67/90 quarters : IF quarter = 90 days

proceeds = f / (1 + .095/4)^(4+67/90)

Can you wrap it up?
