10 years ago A bought a share for 20$ and sold it today for 35$.What is the rate of profit he had from this investment. I thought to use PV=FV*FVIF where PV=35 and PV=20 and then calculate FVIF..is this right?

    see the thing which u were saying was including the interest factor right Future value = Present Value *(1 + K)^n 35 = 20*(1+k)^10 on solving this one u will get k = 0.0575 Rate of return = 5.75 %

    I actually had this solved in my notebook and my teacher had solved this using PV=FV*PVIF

    first i had taken the layman's approach and in that i was ignoring the discounting factor

    PV=20 FV=35 PVIF is wht i have to find...which means i waas right except the fact tht instead of writing PVIF i wrote FVIF
