Quarterly interest rate: r q = (1 + 1%) 3 - 1 = 0 . 0303; Annual interest rate: EAR = (1 + 1%) 12 - 1 = 0 . 1268. To decide which investment to make, we need to evaluate the present values of the cash ﬂow related to each investment. If invest in Hi-Tech venture: Invest \$30 , 000 at t = 0; From t = 0 to t = 20, get proﬁt of \$3 , 000 ; At t = 20, get \$45 , 000 from selling the venture. The time internal for this cash ﬂow is quarter. Thus, PV H = - 30000 + 3000 1 - (1+0 . 0303) - 20 0 . 0303 + 45000 0 . 0303 20 = 39278 . 70 If invest in Restaurant: At t = 0 invest \$30 , 000; At t = 1 invest another \$10 , 000; From t = 3 to t = 7, get proﬁt of \$10 , 000; At t = 7, get \$70 , 000 by selling the restaurant.
