7. (10 marks) The three following investments are unrelated (thus, each part of this question will be marked entirely independently) . Each of the following three investments has a continuously compounded rate of return of 8% per annum. (i) Invest $105 today and receive one payment of $A in exactly 37 months.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
