U NIVERSITY OF N ORTH C AROLINA A T C HAPEL H ILL K ENAN -F LAGLER B USINESS S CHOOL B USI 408: C ORPORATE F INANCE S OLUTIONS TO P RACTICE P ROBLEM SET #1: T IME V ALUE OF M ONEY P ROF . A RZU O ZOGUZ 1. Bob and Jane Loveboat are saving to buy a boat at the end of 5 years. If the boat costs \$25,000, and they can earn 8 percent a year on their savings, how much do they need to put aside at the end of every year 1 through 5? You need to find the amount they need to set aside every year such that the annual savings, invested at 8 percent a year, accumulate to \$25,000. That is, you have an annuity of \$C with FV = \$25,000. Recall that the formula for the future value of an annuity is given by: ( ) [ ] r r C FV t 1 1 + × = where C is the annual payment, r is the annual year interest rate, FV is the future value of the annuity. Therefore we have: ( ) 08 . 1 08 . 1 000 , 25 5 × = C . Solving for C gives, C = \$4,261.41 2. Leeds Autos has just announced its new promotional deal on the new \$45,000 Z4 Roadster. You pay \$5,000 down, and then \$1000 for the next 40 months. Its next door competitor, Chatham Hill Autos will give you a \$3000 off the list price straight away. If the interest rate is 6% a year, which company is giving a better deal? You need to compare the present value of the two streams of payments, paying \$42,000 today, vs. paying \$5000 today, plus \$1000 for the next 40 months. Note that the payments are monthly, so we need to use the monthly rate of 6%/12 = 0.5%. The present value of Leeds Autos offer: \$5000 + PV(annuity(\$1000,T=40,r=0.5%)) = = ( ) 23 . 172 , 41 \$ 005 . 1 1 1 005 . 0 1000 \$ 5000 \$ 40 = × + The present value of Chatham Hill Autos offer: \$45,000 - \$3000 = \$42,000.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• 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.
