Twelve questions on five pages. You are responsible for making certain that your examination is
complete.
Answer all questions. Bracketed values are the points.
If
you need more room, draw an arrow and
write on the back of the page.
Box the answer if it is numerical.
Show your formula setup and
work  where appropriate, write the annuity factor you are calculating,
e.g.,
A
.~i.
Carry at least four
significant (nonzero) digits in your calculations.
Pay attention to stated versus effective interest
rates. Actual institutional details prevail
(e.g.,
stocks pay quarterly and bonds pay semiannually)
unless otherwise specified.

The Good Life
Stephanie is ready to fulfill her new dream
and open Maverick Cellars. Fortunately, in today's economy she can borrow at 15% for 20 years
(makingpayments monthly) even for such a risky venture. Stephaniecan buy new winery equipment
for$I,500,000, or, given theeconomy, she can buy usedequipmentforonly$800,000. It is estimated
that the used equipment will require additional maintenance expenditures of $3,500 per month
compared to the new equipment. The usable life of both types of equipment is 20 years, matching
the term of her loan, which is for the amount of her purchase in both cases.
