Exercises 14.1 2. \$50,000 Lump Sum FV = PV(1+i)^n \$50,000 = PV(1.15)^2 \$50,000 = PV(1.3225) PV = \$37,807.18 \$8,500 per year PV = PMT a n|i PV = \$8,500 (4.160419734) PV = \$35,363.57 Since the \$50,000 lump sum has the higher PV, we would prefer it. Compare this result to #1. 6. PV = PMT/i PV = \$23,500/.065 PV = \$361,538.46 8. PV = PMT/i PV = \$350,000/.0725 PV = \$4,827,586.21 Since the present value of the savings is larger than the \$2,500,000 cost, it would be financially justified to make this investment assuming a 7.25% rate of return. (It is debatable, though, whether the new telecommunications equipment would really keep paying off indefinitely into the future. If we assume a 5 year life, or a 10 year life, or some other fixed limit, the calculation and hence the decision might change.) Page 2 of 6
10. We assume a 8% - 5% = 3% rate. PV = PMT/i
