Problem: If you invest $8000 per period for the following number of periods, how much would you have?
a.7 years at 9 percent
b.40 years at 11 percent

Problem: The western sweeptakes has just informed you that you have won $1 million. The amount is to be paid at the rate of $50000 a year for the next 20 years. With a discount rate of 12%, what is the present value of your winnings.

Problem: Dr Oats, a nutrition professor, invests $8000 in a piece of land that is expected to increase in value by 14% per year for the next five years. She will then take the proceeds and provide herself with a 10-year annuity. Assuming a 14 percent interest rate for the annuity, how much will this annuity be?

Problem: Essex Biochemical Company has a $1000 par value bond that pays 10 percent annual interest. The company yield to maturity on such bonds in the market is 7 percent. Compute the price of the bonds for these maturity dates:
a.30 years
b.15 years
c.1 year

Problem: Bonds issued by Coleman Manufacturing Company have a par value of $1,000, which, of course, is also the amount of principal to be paid at maturity. The bonds are currently selling for $850. They have 10 years remaining to maturity. The annual interest payment is 8 percent ($80). Compute the approximate yield to maturity.

Problem: Laser optics will pay a common stock dividend of $1.60 at the end of year (D1). The required rate of return on common stock (Ke) is 13%. The firm has a constant growth rate(g) of 7 percent. Compute the current price of the stock(Po).

Solution:

Problem: If you invest $8000 per period for the following number of periods, how much would you have?
a.7 years at 9 percent
b.40 years at 11 percent

Future Value of a lump sum amount (PV) can be found by
FV=PV*(1+i)^n
a)i=interest rate=9%
n=number of periods=7
PV=$8000
FV=8000*(1+0.09)^7=$14624.31
b)i=interest rate=11%
n=number of periods=40
PV=$8000
FV=8000*(1+0.40)^7=$84330.80

Now, I am soving this problem assuming that payment of $8000 is made per year.
a)
C=periodic payment=$8000
n=number of periods=7
i=interest rate=9%
Future value of annuity=C*((1+i)^n-1)/i
=8000*((1+9%)^7-1)/9%
=$73603.48
b.40 years at 11 percent
C=periodic payment=$8000
n=number of periods=40
i=interest rate=11%
Future value of annuity=C*((1+i)^n-1)/i
=8000*((1+11%)^40-1)/11%
=$4,654,608.53
