The fund will pay $11,000 at the end of the first year and then increase by 1.50% per year. The manager expects that the fund will earn a 5.75% annual rate of return. How much should you donate to York today in order to maintain this scholarship? A) $50,346 B) $146,509 C) $183,214 D) $258,824 Solution This is a growing annuity: PV = $11,000/(0.0575 - 0.015) x [1 - (1.015/1.0575) 30 ] = $183,214 2. (Q. 5 in B) You want to buy a house in Collingwood that costs $300,000. You make a 20% down payment and finance the rest with a 15 year mortgage.

A) $162,117 B) $183,831 C) $204,514 D) $229,789 Solution i s = 6.5%/2 = 3.25% EAR = (1+.0325) 2 -1 = 6.605625% Monthly rate is r = (1+0.06605625) 1/12 - 1 = 0.005345 = 0.5345%. Number of months = 15 years x 12 = 180 = n Monthly Payment using your calculator: N=180, I/Y=0.5345%, PV=-$240,000, FV=0, COMP PMT PMT=$2,079.33 Remaining principal at the end of 5-year term is the PV of remaining payments: N=120, I/Y=0.5345%, PMT=$2,079.33, FV=0, COMP PV=$ 183,831 3.
