your answer to 2 decimal places (e.g., 32.16).)Selected Answer: Correct Answer: Question 14 4 out of 4 pointsGiven an interest rate of 7.15 percent per year, what is the value at year t= 8 of a
perpetual stream of \$3,795 payments that begin at year t= 20? (Do not include the dollar sign (\$). Enter rounded answer as directed, but do not use the rounded numbers in intermediate calculations. Round your answer to 2 decimal places (e.g., 32.16).)Selected Answer: Correct Answer: Response Feedback: Question 15 4 out of 4 pointsCameron is going to receive an annuity for 42 years of \$22,330, and Kennedy is going to receive a perpetuity of that same amount. If the appropriate discount rate is 7%, how much more are Kennedy's cash flows worth today than Cameron's cash flows? (Do not include the dollar sign (\$). Enter rounded answer as
directed, but do not use the rounded numbers in intermediate calculations. Round your answer to 2 decimal places (e.g., 32.16).)Selected Answer: Correct Answer: Response Feedback: Solution A:The difference between Kennedy's and Cameron's cash flows is zero each year up to and including the year that Cameron's cash flows end. Then Kennedy's cash flows continue the next year into perpetuity. Discount the value of that perpetuity to present.For example, suppose the discount rate is 6%, and if the cash flows are \$30,000 and Cameron's stop at year 42, then the difference is \$0 through year 42 and \$30,000 starting in year 43. The perpetuity formula calculates the value one period before the first cash flow or in year 42: V 42 = \$30,000 / .06 = \$500,000 Discount that back to present for 42 years. V 0 = \$500,000 / (1+.06) Solution B: Calculate how much Kennedy's perpetual cash flows are worth today, and then subtract how much Cameron's annuity cash flows are worth today. For example, suppose the discount rate is 6%, the cash flows are \$30,000, and Cameron's stop at year 42. Today Kennedy's perpetual cash flows are worth PVP = \$30,000 / .06 = \$500,000 Today Cameron's annuity cash flows are worth PVA = \$30,000 / .06 * [1 - 1/(1+.06) And the difference is PVP - PVA = \$500,000 - \$456,736 = \$43,264 Question 16 12 out of 12 points Suppose you are going to receive \$25,000 per year for 10 year. The appropriate interest rate is 5%. (a) What is the present value of these payments if they are an ordinary annuity? [r]
(b) What is the present value of these payments if they are an annuity due? [s] (c) If you invest the payments over these 10 years, what will be their future value if they are an ordinary annuity?

### 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.
