Exercise 2

A survey has been completed by 30 families. Their responses for “number of children” are the following:

1, 1, 2, 3, 0, 0, 1, 2, 3, 1, 4, 3, 2, 2, 1, 0, 2, 1, 5, 1, 2, 1, 3, 2, 0, 6, 2, 1, 1, 0

1) Introduce these numbers in an Excel table and calculate the the following statistical data:

minimum, maximum, average, median, mode.

2) Use conditional formatting (on the original data) to highlight the cells with numbers grater than 2.

3) Create the following table next to the data displayed with the following information: Number of Children Number of families

0 …. 1 …. 2 …. 3 …. 4 …. 5 …. 6 ….

With the second column containing the number of families having 0, 1, …, 6 children.

4) Show the last results in a Pie Chart.

Exercise 3

Suppose that we have an annual interest rate of 6%.

1) Calculate the present value of 200€ payments at the end of each month (type 0), during 2 years.

2) Calculate the future value of 50€ payment at the beginning of each year (type 1), during 10 years.

3) Calculate the internal rate of return of an investment of 3000€, if we get 950€, 930€, 800€ and 528€ in the following periods.

4) Calculate the internal rate of return of an investment of 5000€ on 1st January 2013, if we get 1900€ on 14th February 2013, 1640€ on 25th March 2013 and 1500€ 12th May of 2013.

5) Compare the net present value of the following two investment possibilities: A: to invest 4000€ now and get 1000€, 1800€, 1500€ and 300€ in the next years, B: to invest 5000€ now, and get 1300€, 1350€, 1400€ and 1450€ in the next years

if we suppose that there is a 2% of annual interest rate.

Exercise 4

1) Which would you choose of the following two options? A: to get 20,000€ in 4 years, B: to get 1000€ now and 1000€ at the end of in each quarter during four years (future value, suppose that there is 8% of annual interest rate).

Which would you choose, if the interest rate were 7% annual?

2) Which would you choose of the following two options? A: to get 7,300€ now, or B: to get 240 at the beginning of each month (type 1), for three years, supposing that there is a 12% of annual interest rate.

3) Which would you choose of the following two options, if you had 10,000€ to invest: A: a savings account with 5,5% of interest rate B: a return of 2000€ annually in the following 6 years (use IRR).

4) Compare the internal rate of return of the following investment opportunities

Data A B C Investment 01/01/2013 -5000 -6000 -5500 Return 25/03/2013 1800 2000 1900

10/07/2013 1600 1830 1700 20/10/2013 1300 1600 1000 31/12/2013 500 800 1145
