John MoffatKeymasterThe PV of the cash inflow (and therefore the principal) is 5,130 x (1/1.14) = 4,500.

Therefore the interest is 5,130 – 4,500 = 630.

AnonymousInactiveis it 0.14+1 year?

John MoffatKeymasterNo.

1/(1+r)^n is the discount factor where r is the interest rate and n is the number of years. You are given the formula at the top of the page of present value factors that you are given in the exam.

This is all explained in my free lectures. The lectures are a complete free course for Paper MA and cover everything needed to be able to pass the exam well.
