    Assume you pay an annual rent of $36,000 over a period of 44 years - paid at the beginning of each year.
    a) If i=0.04, calculate the NPV of this payment stream.

He would be willing to change the payment scheme -- but only if you pay him an additional $25,000 in cash premium at the beginning of the first year. Should you do that? Calculate the resulting difference compared to the beginning-of-the year scheme under (a).

    a)
    i=0.04
    Number of periods=n=44
    Annual Rent=R=$36000
    NPV=-R*(P/A,0.04,44)*(1+i)
    (Its a beginning of period payment. Its shown as negative as it is a ...
