b. No, because the project has a net present value of -$1,954.91. Study Questions 1. Dr. Bob Jackson owns a parcel of land that a local farmer has offered to rent for the next 10 years. The farmer has offered to pay $20,000 today or an annuity of $3,200 at the end of each of the next 10 years. Which payment method should Dr. Jackson accept if his required rate of return is 10 percent? Solution : Dr. Jackson should choose the payment method that maximizes his net present value. If he chooses the lump sum payment, the net present value is simply the $20,000 he will receive today. If he chooses the annuity plan, the net present value will be only $19,662.61. N = 10 I = 10 % PV =? PMT = 3,200 FV = 0 Therefore, Dr. Jackson should choose the lump sum payment of $20,000. 2.
