The other extreme case would be to withdraw payments from Fund 1 whenever possible, and to withdraw from Fund 2 only when Fund 1 is exhausted. In view of the answer above, we will assume that Fund 1 becomes exhausted at the end of the fifth period. It will be necessary to confirm that the answer obtained is consistent with this assumption. At the end of the first period interest of is earned on Fund 1 and deposited into Fund 2. A withdrawal of 1 is then made with all of it coming from Fund 1. This leaves a new balance of - I in Fund 1 and . IK in Fund 2. At the end of the second period interest of { - I) is earned on Fund 1 and deposited into Fund 2. A withdrawal of 1 is then made with all of it coming from Fund 1. This leaves a new balance of -2 in Fund 1 and + ( - I) = .2K- in Fund 2. If this process is continued for two more periods, we have -4 in Fund 1, which we have assumed lies between 0 and 1. Also, we have

[ +{ -1) + ( -2) + { -3)] = AK-.6

in Fund 2. At the end of the fifth period interest of . 1( - 4) is earned on Fund

1 and deposited into Fund 2. A withdrawal of 1 is then made with /sT - 4 of it coming from Fund 1, which is now exhausted. The rest of the payment, i.e. l-(K-4) = 5- K, comes from Fund 2. The new balance in Fund

2 is

( -.6) + ( -4)-(5- ) = 1.5K-6.

At the end of the sixth period no interest is earned, since Fund 1 is exhausted. The fund balance in Fund 2 is unchanged, since Fund 2 does not earn interest. The final withdrawal of 1 comes entirely from Fund 2 exhausting it, so that we have

Further analysis of annuity values at simple interest is instructive. Consider the investment of a sum of money for n periods at simple interest which is just sufficient to permit a withdrawal of 1 the end of each period for n periods. The concept of simple interest means that interest does not earn additional interest. Thus, the original amount of the investment is deposited in a fund which earns interest at rate but any interest earned is immediately transferred into a second fund which does not earn interest.

The ambiguity arises whenever a withdrawal is made. How much should be withdrawn from the principal fund, which earns interest, and how much from the interest fund, which does not earn interest? Different answers will be obtained depending on how this allocation is made.

In order to illustrate some of the possible answers which can be obtained, let n = 6 and i = 10%. Let the original investment be denoted by K. We will refer to the principal fund as "Fund 1," and the interest fund as "Fund 2."

One extreme case would be to withdraw payments from Fund 2 whenever possible, and to withdraw from Fund 1 only when Fund 2 is exhausted. At the end of the first period interest of .1 : is earned on Fund 1 and deposited into Fund 2. A withdrawal of 1 is then made, with coming from Fund 2 and I - coming from Fund 1. This leaves a new balance in Fund 1 of -(1 - .1 = 1.1 : - 1. At the end of the second period interest of . 1 -1) is earned on Fund 1 and deposited into Fund 2. A withdrawal of 1 is then made, with [1 - 1] coming from Fund 2 and 1 - .1(1.1 : - 1) coming from Fund 1. This leaves a new balance in Fund 1 of

(1 - 1) - [1 - .1(1.1 :- 1)] = (1 ) -(1 + 1.1).

If this process is continued for four more years, the balance in Fund 1 at the end of six years is

(1.1) :- [1 + 1.1 + (1.1)2 + (1 1)4 p i)5j

and the balance in Fund 2 is zero. However, the balance in Fund 1 must also be zero after the final withdrawal. Thus

(1.1)-1 l-(l.l)- 4 (1.1)6(1.1-1) .1

which is the value of j using compound interest. We will discover in Chapter 6 that this is no accident. The results of this approach are summarized in Table 3.1.

\.5K-e = I 7

= 4.67 = a

This answer is valid, since the assumption was made that 4 < < 5. If an answer had been obtained outside this interval, the problem would have to be reworked until an answer consistent with the assumption about the exhaustion of Fund 1 is obtained. The results of this approach are summarized in Table 3.2.

We next apply formula (3.38) directly and obtain

1.1 1.2

= 4.52

which lies between our two extreme answers already obtained. Apparently, formula (3.38) involves an implicit intermediate allocation of withdrawals from Fund 1 and Fund 2 between the two extremes. If we apply formula (3.41), we obtain

1 -(- 1.1 + . • • + 1.5

= - -

= 4.69

which lies outside the range bounded by the two extremes. Thus, we must question whether formula (3.41) produces a result with any real-world significance at all, at least in this example. The results of this analysis are summarized in Table 3.3.

At this point the reader should be thoroughly convinced that finding annuity values at simple interest is treacherous indeed. Furthermore, simple discount would present just as many difficulties. The reader now should really appreciate the admonition given early in this section to avoid computing annuity values not involving compound interest if at all possible!

Example 3.12 Compare the value of at 10% interest (1) assuming compound interest, (2) using formula (3.39), and (3) using formula (3.40).

1. Using compound interest at 10%

= 7.72 ,

2. From formula (3.39)

1.1 1.2

= 7.23 .

3. From formula (3.40)

= 1 + 1.1 + 1.2 +

+ 1.5 =7.50.

Answer (3) involves simple interest being earned on each payment from the date of deposit to die end of die six-year period of investment. Answer 1 is larger dian eidier of die other two, verifying the larger accumulation with compound interest.

Example 3.13 Find , if &, = .021 for 0 < t B. If we accumulate each payment from the date of deposit to the end of the five-year period at the varying force of interest 5,, we have

51 = E « t=i

+ .21+ .16 .091

= 1.27125 + 1.23368 + 1.17351 + 1.09417 + 1 = 5.7726.

Alternatively, formula (3.39) is applicable in diis case. We have

which agrees with the answer obtained from first principles above.
