This situation is depicted on the following time time: $15,640.00 17,640.00 15,041.40 17,280.00 18,000.00 $83,601.40 Future Value Time line for future value of a mixed stream (end-of-year cash flows, compounded at 8% to the end of year 5) $11,500 $14,000 1 2 0 $12,900 $16,000 $18,000 3 4 5 End of Year Table Use To solve this problem, we determine the future value of each cash flow compounded at 8% for the appropriate number of years. Note that the first cash flow of $11,500, received at the end of year 1, will earn interest for 4 years (end of year 1 through end of year 5); the second cash flow of $14,000, received at the end of year 2, will earn interest for 3 years (end of year 2 through end of year 5); and so on.
