The Excel file is here

 

1. E is correct because the cash flows between two annuities are almost the same, the difference is only at very first payment and very lat payment. Annuity A pays 500 today, while annuity B pays 500 at the end of 25 year, so the present value and the future values of A is larger (since you would rather get 500 today than in 25 years.).

 

2. D is correct 5000, borrowed at the begining of year 4 will result in 5000*(1+0.07)^3 = 6125.22 , because they will be repaid in 3 years.

 

3. A is correct. you can use excel function =PMT(0.0675/12,120,199600). 199600 is your PV which is 80% of the initial cost.

 

4. D is correct. The problem should state $85 rather than $70 (you have the other way around. In this case he will pay in full in almost 115 months.

 

5. B is correct just use the annuitiformula for find A

The Present Value of an Annuity (PVA)
PVA = A *1-1
----
(1 + i)n

------

i

 

6. Correct answer is C, see the attached excell file

 

7. Correct answer is A. If it is interest only you pay just 7.5%*30,000=2,250 pear year, so in ten years it becomes 22,500.

 

8. The correct answer is 21,423, you do not have this choice please check again the problem, I'll be glad to help you.
