Unformatted text preview: Hw-6 Solutions1. (8.3) f = 4% per year; How long until $1 (actual) will be worth $0.50 (real) in today's purchasing power?From Equation 8-1, with k = 0, we have (R$)N= $0.50 = ($1) (1.04)N= 2 N (ln (1.04)) = ln (2) N = 18 years In 18 years, the dollar's purchasing power will be one-half of what it is now if the general price inflation rate is 4% per year. 2. (8.9) By using Equation 8-1, but with each year's general price inflation taken into account separately, the R$ equivalents in year 0 dollars are calculated as follows. EOY Salary (R$ in Year 0) 1 $34,000 (P/F,2.4%,1) =$34,0001(1+0.024)= $33,203 2 $36,200 (P/F,2.4%,1)(P/F,1.9%,1) =$36,2001(1+0.024)1(1+0.019)= $34,692 3 $38,800 (P/F,2.4%,1)(P/F,1.9%,1)(P/F,3.3%,1) =$38,8001(1+0.024)1(1+0.019)1(1+0.033)= $35,996 4 $41,500 (P/F,2.4%,1)(P/F,1.9%,1)(P/F,3.3%,1)(P/F,3.4%,1) =$41,5001(1+0.024)1(1+0.019)1(1+0.033)1(1+0.034)= $37,235 3.
