The cost of this option is the cost fee rising at the continuosly compounded rate of 5%. Cost ( at the end of 10th year) = 200 e 0 : 05 ± 10 = \$329 : 75 Net _ V alue ( at the end of 10th year) = 3000 ± 329 : 75 = \$2670 : 25 Option 2 : Invest in the stock market, which yields a value of V alue ( at the end of 10th year) = 1000 e 0 : 095 ± 10 = \$2585 : 71 Result: Based on this information keep the collection ! 3.3.10 1
