See p. 27. Show that P0 (1 + i)x is an increasing, concave up function of x. (See p. 28. Show, by induction, that for n > 1 and i > 0, n n (1 + 2i) − 1 > 2 ((1 + i) − 1) . Use this to show that if i, the interest rate per period, is doubled, then the price appreciation from compounding is more than doubled if n > 1. What happens if n = 1? (See p. 29. Show that for n > 0 and i > 0, 2n (1 + i) n − 1 > 2 ((1 + i) − 1) , n by rewriting the inequality as a quadratic in (1 + i) . Use this to show that if n, the number of periods, is doubled, then the principal appreciation from compounding is more than doubled.
This theorem guarantees that a typical savings account has a unique IRR, in the following sense. If the savings account is opened with a positive balance C0 > 0, and despite withdrawals and deposits, the interest rate, i, p is unchanged and the account is never overdrawn, so k=0 Ck (1+i)p−k > 0 for 0 ≤ p ≤ n − 1, then there is an IRR, namely i, and it is unique. ) • This theorem is also valid if the inequality in condition (b) is replaced with p p−k < 0. 44 on p. 4 The Rule of 72 The Rule of 72 is a rule of thumb sometimes used by investors.
