    1)   What are the key advantages common to LLPs and LLC.
    1. Single level of taxation
    2. Losses pass through
    3. Limited liability
    4. Administration by agreement
    5. Broader ownership allowed.

    2) If a stock is paying $3.0 per year in dividends, and is expected to continue this indefinitely, with a required rate of return of 10% what is the value of the stock?
    Value of a stock = D0*(1+g)/(r-g)
    Here we have
    D0 $3.00
    g 0

    Stock value $30.00
    Note: we can also use the direct formula of D0/r for a non growing dividend case.

We then subtract this from the desired amount of $600,000 and then calculate what annuity we need to save to make the total as $600,000
    Interest Rate 8%
    Single Investment $100,000
