14. This stock has a constant growth rate of dividends, but the required return changes twice. To find the
value of the stock today, we will begin by finding the price of the stock at Year 6, when both the
dividend growth rate and the require
So, the number of shares you need to purchase is:
Number of shares to purchase = (400,000 .20) + 1
Number of shares to purchase = 80,001
And the total cost to you will be the shares needed times the price per share, or:
Total cost = 80,001 $48
Total cost
We can solve for the dividend that was just paid:
$3.25 = D0(1 + .055)
D0 = $3.25 / 1.055 = $3.08

The price of any financial instrument is the PV of the future cash flows. The future dividends of this
stock are an annuity for 11 years, so the price of

Here we need to find the coupon rate of the bond. All we need to do is to set up the bond pricing
equation and solve for the coupon payment as follows:
P = $948 = C(PVIFA5.90%,9) + $1,000(PVIF5.90%,9)
Solving for the coupon payment, we get:
C = $51.39
NOTE: Most problems do not explicitly list a par value for bonds. Even though a bond can have any par
value, in general, corporate bonds in the United States will have a par value of $1,000. We will use this
par value in all problems unless a different pa
Note that this is the PV of this annuity exactly seven years from today. Now we can discount this
lump sum to today. The value of this cash flow today is:
PV = $133,166.63 / [1 + (.10/12)]84 = $66,320.68
Now we need to find the PV of the annuity for the f
Using the PVA equation:
PVA = $2,720,000 = $17,500[cfw_1 [1 / (1 + r)360]/ r]
Unfortunately this equation cannot be solved to find the interest rate using algebra. To find the
interest rate, we need to solve this equation on a financial calculator, using
42.
The amount of principal paid on the loan is the PV of the monthly payments you make. So, the
present value of the $1,300 monthly payments is:
PVA = $1,300[(1 cfw_1 / [1 + (.0585/12)]360) / (.0585/12)] = $220,361.04
The monthly payments of $1,300 will
FVA rises as r increases, and FVA falls as r decreases
The present values of $7,500 per year for 20 years at the various interest rates given are:
PVA@10% = $7,500cfw_[1 (1/1.10)20] / .10 = $63,851.73
PVA@5% = $7,500cfw_[1 (1/1.05)20] / .05 = $93,466.58

35. Since we are looking to quadruple our money, the PV and FV are irrelevant as long as the FV is four
times as large as the PV. The number of periods is four, the number of quarters per year. So:
FV = $4 = $1(1 + r)(12/3)
r = .4142, or 41.42%

So, the total amount saved at retirement is:
$1,808,390.34 + 401,806.02 = $2,210,196.36
Solving for the withdrawal amount in retirement using the PVA equation gives us:
PVA = $2,210,196.36 = $C[1 cfw_1 / [1 + (.07/12)]300 / (.07/12)]
C = $2,210,196.36 / 1

To answer this question, we can use either the FV or the PV formula. Both will give the same
answer since they are the inverse of each other. We will use the FV formula, that is:
FV = PV(1 + r)t
Solving for t, we get:
t = ln(FV / PV) / ln(1 + r)

Net income = (1 t)EBT. Plugging in the numbers given and solving for EBT, we get:
EBT = $15,185 / (1 0.34) = $23,007.58
Now, we can add interest to EBT to g
Substituting the total equity into the equation and solving for long-term debt gives the following:
2.857 = 1 + (3,301.89 / LTD)
LTD = $3,301.89 / 1.857 = $1,777.94
Now, we can find the total debt of the company:
TD = CL + LTD = $910 + 1,777.94 = $2,687.9
PM = [(0.13)($2,805)] / [(1 + 1.4)( $6,189)] = .0245
Now that we have the profit margin, we can use this number and the given sales figure to solve for
net income:
PM = .0245 = NI / S
NI = .0245($6,189) = $151.94

One formula to calculate return on equity is:
