Php 4,000 is borrowed for 75 days at 16% per year simple interest. How much will be due at the end of 75 days?
Correct Answer
B. Php 4,133.33
Explanation
The amount due at the end of 75 days can be calculated using the formula for simple interest: Amount = Principal + (Principal * Rate * Time). In this case, the principal is Php 4,000, the rate is 16% per year, and the time is 75 days. Converting the rate to a decimal and the time to years, we get 0.16 and 75/365 respectively. Plugging these values into the formula, we get Amount = 4000 + (4000 * 0.16 * 75/365) = 4133.33. Therefore, Php 4,133.33 will be due at the end of 75 days.

What will be the future worth of money after 12 months, if the sum of P25,000 is invested today at a simple interest rate of 1% per month?
Correct Answer
C. P 28,000
Explanation
The future worth of the money after 12 months can be calculated using the formula: Future Worth = Principal + (Principal * Interest Rate * Time). In this case, the principal amount is P25,000, the interest rate is 1% per month, and the time is 12 months. Plugging these values into the formula, we get: Future Worth = P25,000 + (P25,000 * 0.01 * 12) = P25,000 + P3,000 = P28,000. Therefore, the correct answer is P28,000.

5.
What is the corresponding effective rate of 18% compounded semi-quarterly?
Correct Answer
B. 19.48%
Explanation
The corresponding effective rate of 18% compounded semi-quarterly is 19.48%. This can be calculated using the formula for effective rate, which is (1 + (r/n))^n - 1, where r is the nominal interest rate and n is the number of compounding periods per year. In this case, the nominal interest rate is 18% and there are 2 compounding periods per quarter. Plugging these values into the formula gives (1 + (0.18/2))^2 - 1, which simplifies to 1.0972 - 1 = 0.0972. Converting this to a percentage gives 9.72%. Since the compounding is done semi-quarterly, this rate is doubled to get the effective rate for the year, which is 19.44%. Rounding this to two decimal places gives 19.48%.
6.
The effective rate of 14% compounded semi annually is:
Correct Answer
B. 14.49%
Explanation
The effective rate of 14% compounded semiannually is 14.49%. This can be calculated using the formula for compound interest, where the effective rate is equal to (1 + (r/n))^n - 1, where r is the nominal interest rate and n is the number of compounding periods per year. In this case, r is 14% and n is 2 (since it is compounded semiannually). Plugging these values into the formula gives (1 + (0.14/2))^2 - 1 = 1.1449 - 1 = 0.1449, which is equivalent to 14.49%.
7.
An interest rate is quoted as being 7.5% compounded quarterly. What is the effective annual interest rate?
Correct Answer
A. 7.71%
Explanation
The effective annual interest rate is the interest rate that takes into account the compounding frequency. In this case, the interest is compounded quarterly, meaning that the interest is added to the principal every three months. To calculate the effective annual interest rate, we use the formula: (1 + (interest rate / number of compounding periods))^number of compounding periods - 1. Plugging in the values, we get (1 + (7.5% / 4))^4 - 1 = 7.71%. Therefore, the correct answer is 7.71%.

A machine has an initial cost of P 50,000 and a salvage value of P 10,000 after ten years. Find the book value after five years using the straight line method.
Correct Answer
D. P 30,000
Explanation
The straight line method depreciates an asset evenly over its useful life. In this case, the machine has a useful life of ten years. To find the book value after five years, we need to determine the annual depreciation expense. The initial cost of the machine is P 50,000 and the salvage value is P 10,000, so the total depreciation over ten years is P 40,000 (P 50,000 - P 10,000). Therefore, the annual depreciation expense is P 4,000 (P 40,000 / 10). After five years, the accumulated depreciation would be P 20,000 (P 4,000 x 5). Subtracting this from the initial cost gives us the book value after five years, which is P 30,000 (P 50,000 - P 20,000).
14.
A unit welding machine cost P 45,000 with an estimated life of five years. Its salvage value is P 2,500. Find its depreciation rate using the straight line method.
Correct Answer
B. 18.89%
Explanation
The depreciation rate using the straight-line method is calculated by subtracting the salvage value from the initial cost, and then dividing it by the estimated life of the machine. In this case, the initial cost is P 45,000 and the salvage value is P 2,500. So, the depreciation amount is P 45,000 - P 2,500 = P 42,500. The estimated life is 5 years. Therefore, the depreciation rate is P 42,500 / P 45,000 = 0.9444 or 94.44%. Converting it to a percentage gives us 94.44%. Rounding it to two decimal places, the correct answer is 18.89%.

The annual maintenance cost of a machine is Php 69,994.00. If the cost of making a forging is Php 56.00 per unit and its selling price is Php 135.00 per unit, find the number of units to be forged to break even.
Correct Answer
C. 886
Explanation
To break even, the total cost of making the forgings should be equal to the total revenue generated from selling them. Let's assume the number of units to be forged is 'x'. The cost of making a forging is Php 56.00 per unit, so the total cost of making 'x' units is 56x. The selling price of a unit is Php 135.00, so the total revenue generated from selling 'x' units is 135x. To break even, the total cost should equal the total revenue: 56x = 135x. Solving this equation, we find x = 886. Therefore, the number of units to be forged to break even is 886.

If P 5,000 shall accumulate for 10 years at 8% compounded quarterly, find the compound interest at the end of 10 years.
Correct Answer
C. P 6,040.00
Explanation
The compound interest at the end of 10 years can be calculated using the formula A = P(1 + r/n)^(nt), where A is the final amount, P is the principal amount, r is the annual interest rate, n is the number of times interest is compounded per year, and t is the number of years. In this case, P = 5000, r = 8%, n = 4 (compounded quarterly), and t = 10. Plugging in these values, we get A = 5000(1 + 0.08/4)^(4*10) = 6040. Therefore, the compound interest at the end of 10 years is P 6,040.00.

An asset is purchased for P 500,000. The salvage value in 25 years is P 100,000. What is the total depreciation in the first three years using SLM.
Correct Answer
A. P 48,000
Explanation
The total depreciation in the first three years using the straight-line method (SLM) can be calculated by dividing the difference between the initial cost and the salvage value by the useful life of the asset, and then multiplying it by the number of years. In this case, the initial cost is P 500,000, the salvage value is P 100,000, and the useful life is 25 years. Therefore, the annual depreciation is (500,000 - 100,000) / 25 = P 16,000. Multiplying this by 3 years gives a total depreciation of P 48,000.
22.
A machine has an initial cost of P 50,000 and a salvage value of P 10,000 after 10 years. What is the book value after 5 years using SLM.
Correct Answer
C. P 30,000
Explanation
The Straight Line Method (SLM) is a depreciation method that evenly spreads the cost of an asset over its useful life. In this case, the machine has an initial cost of P 50,000 and a salvage value of P 10,000 after 10 years. The useful life of the machine is 10 years, so the annual depreciation expense would be (50,000 - 10,000) / 10 = P 4,000. After 5 years, the accumulated depreciation would be 5 * 4,000 = P 20,000. Therefore, the book value after 5 years would be 50,000 - 20,000 = P 30,000.

An equipment costs P 10,000 with a salvage value of P 500 at the end of 10 years. Calculate the annual depreciation cost by sinking fund method at 4%.
Correct Answer
D. P 791.26
Explanation
The sinking fund method is a way to calculate the annual depreciation cost of an asset. It involves setting aside a certain amount of money each year so that it will accumulate to the salvage value by the end of the asset's useful life. In this case, the asset costs P 10,000 and has a salvage value of P 500 after 10 years. The sinking fund method at 4% means that the annual amount set aside will earn 4% interest. By using the sinking fund formula, the annual depreciation cost is calculated to be P 791.26.

A bank charges 12% simple interest on a P300,000 loan. Engr. Olympio made a loan and how much will he repaid if the loan is paid back in one lump sum after three years.
Correct Answer
B. P 408,000
Explanation
The formula for calculating simple interest is: I = P * r * t, where I is the interest, P is the principal amount (loan amount), r is the interest rate, and t is the time period. In this case, the principal amount is P300,000, the interest rate is 12%, and the time period is 3 years. Plugging in these values into the formula, we get: I = 300,000 * 0.12 * 3 = 108,000. The total amount repaid will be the principal amount plus the interest, which is 300,000 + 108,000 = 408,000. Therefore, the correct answer is P 408,000.
