_____ c) future value of the loan payment received from the first customer calculated on a simple interest basis.
_____ d) simple interest future value of the amount of the loan made to the first customer.

2. In the future value formula FVT = P (1 + R/M)T x M, if:
_____ a) M equals two, interest is compounded semi-annually for each year in the period.
_____ b) T equals one and M equals twelve, interest is compounded once during each twelve month period.
_____ c) T equals three, interest is compounded every four months.
_____ d) T equals five and M equals one, simple interest is calculated once each year for five years.

3. In the formula FVT = P x eRT,eRT represents:
_____ a) the future value interest factor for a discrete number of compounding periods.
_____ b) the future value interest factor for an infinitely large number of compounding periods.
_____ c) simple interest calculated on a continuous basis for a specified period of time.
_____ d) interest factor compounded for a discrete period (e) at a certain rate (R) for a specific amount of time (T).
