# Present Value of Annual Cash Flow

You win the lottery for $20 million!

You have a choice to take $1 million now and $1 million for the next 19 years

OR take $10.6 million today.

Assume you expect to earn 6% on your investments.

Hint: You are actually comparing a 19 year annuity @ $1 million a year vs. $9.6 million ($10.6 minus $1). You need to find out what discount rate gets you to a PV of $9.6 million today on the 19 year annuity of $1 million a year.
