Question: You own an oil well that will pay you $25,000 per year for 8 years, with the first payment being made today. If you think a fair return on the well is 7%, how much should you ask for if you decide to sell it? Your Answer: Instructor Explanation: PVA = PMT * [(1 – {1 / (1+i)n}) / i ] Since the first payment is made today, there are 7 more payments of $25,000. PVA = $25,000 * [(1 – {1 / (1+.07)7}) /.07] PVA = $25,000 * [.3773 / .07] PVA = $25,000 * 5.3893 = $134,732.24 + $25,000 payment today = $159,732.24 Points Received: 5 of 5 Comments: 4.
