Annuity payments are assumed to come at the end of each payment period (termed an ordinary annuity).
However, an exception occurs when the annuity payments come at the beginning of each period (termed an
annuity due).
What is the future value of a 7-year annuity of $3,700 per period where payments come at the beginning of
each period? The interest rate is 10 percent. Use Appendix C for an approximate answer, but calculate your
final answer using the formula and financial calculator methods. To find the future value of an annuity due
when using the Appendix tables, add 1 to n and subtract 1 from the tabular value. For example, to find the
future value of a $100 payment at the beginning of each period for five periods at 10 percent, go to
Appendix C for n = 6 and i = 10 percent. Look up the value of 7.716 and subtract 1 from it for an answer of
