How much profit did he make for the lenght of time he help the TBill and what was his actual rate of return?  my work so far: s= 500000 (1+0.011753424) 500000(1.011753425) =505876.71 p=505876.71 (1+0.00469 =508.25 **AND** I need help: You owe two payments $6000 one due in 6 months and the other due in 15 months. If you make a payment of $6000 today, when must you make the second payment of $6000 if money is worth 8% compounded semi annually?  This is my work so far: Fv=6000 (1+0.00667)^15 =6000(0.9051237746) =5430.8 n= 12x15/12 n=15 Edit/Delete Message
