To get A1, this quantity needs to be multiplied by the interest rate (1,000 x 1.05) ( )[ (| )( | )] ( ) For P2, the \$2,000 is A1. [ (| ( [ ( )( )( ) )] )] [ ( )( )] Thus, select Series 2. Problem 2 Textbook Problem 4-93 a) (10 points) [ (| )( | )] [ ( )( )] b) For this second part, we have a uniform gradient but the incremental amount is the unknown.

(a) i = 3%. We have () and () , thus y is preferred to x. (b) i = 5%. We have () and () , thus y is preferred to x. (c) i = 10%. We have () and () , thus x is preferred to y.
