Here we have the FVA, the length of the annuity, and the interest rate. We want to calculate the
annuity payment. Using the FVA equation:
FVA = Ccfw_[(1 + r)t 1] / r
$25,000 = $C[(1.07458 1) / .0745]
We can now solve this equation for the an

Our definition of AAR is the average net income divided by the average book value. The average
net income for this project is:
Average net income = ($1,735,000 + 2,105,000 + 1,954,000 + 1,342,000) / 4 = $1,784,000
And the average book value i
53. Lets denote the PV of annuity as A. Here we are given A, number of periods, and the amount of
the annuity. We need to solve for the interest rate. We must be careful to use the cash flows of
the loan. Using the present value of an annuity equation, we

11. To find the PV of a lump sum, we use:
PV = FV / (1 + r)t = $2,000,000 / (1.09)80 = $2,027.26
13. 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. W
