What is the present value of Investment A

Solution:

Present value = PMT*(1 - (1+i)^-n)/i

= 2500*(1-(1+0.07)^-3)/0.07 = $6,560.79

Answer: $6,560.79

What is the present value of Investment B

Solution:

Present value = PMT/(1+i)^n

= 8500/(1+0.07)^5 = $6060.38

Answer: $6060.38

What is the present value of Investment C

Present value = 1000*(1(1+0.07)^-4)/0.07 +4000/(1+0.07)^5 = $6,239.16
