    End of Year Cash Flow

    1 $10,000
    2 10,000
    3 10,000
    4 12,000
    5 12,000

    8 15,000
    9 15,000
    10 15,000

    a. Solve for the present value of the cash flow stream by summing the present value of each
    individual cash flow.

    b. Now, solve for the present value by summing the present value of the three separate
    annuities (one current and two deferred).
