2. You’re thinking about charging a sofa to your credit card. It will take one year to

pay back the sofa. If the sofa costs $850.00, and your APR interest is 17%, how much

will the couch cost after you pay back the credit card, including interest?

3. Your dad is thinking about putting this painting on his credit card. He’s decided

that it will take him 1 year to pay the credit card bill. The painting is $2500.00.

The APR interest is 15%. If it takes him 1 year to pay it back, how much will the

painting cost in all?

4. Would you charge items to a credit card if it means you will pay back more

money than the item you bought is worth? Why or why not?

**invest with the best**Edit

Your grandfather has given you $5,000 to invest for college. It’s up to you to invest this money wisely! You’ve decided that you want to invest in a lot of different types of investments, including savings accounts, CDs , money market accounts, mutual funds, and stocks. In order to prove to your grandfather that you’re a wise investor, you must come up with the most profitable way to invest your money over a 12 week period.

As a group on how much of the $5,000 should be invested in each of the following:

Savings accounts

CD

Mutual fund (including number of shares in total)

Stock (including number of shares in total)

Your CD earned 10% interest on the total amount invested. How much money do you have now?

Your stock went up by $1.00 a share. How much money did you earn in total?

Your savings account earned 5% interest on the total amount that you saved. How much money did you earn in total?

Your mutual fund gained an average of $1.00 a share! How much money did you earn in total?

Your CD earned 5% interest on the total amount invested. How much money do you have now?

Your stock just went up by $2.00 a share!

Calculate how much money you made.

Uh oh! Your mutual fund lost $.50 a share in total. How much money did you lose?

Your savings account earned 2% interest on the

total amount saved. How much do you have now?
