    See attachment.

    At an inflation rate of 9 percent, the purchasing power of RM1 would be cut in half in
    8.04 years. How long to the nearest year would it take the purchasing power of RM1 to
    be cut in half if the inflation rate were only 4 percent?

    A project with a 3-year life has the following probability distributions for its possible endof-
    year cash flows in each of the next three years:
    Year 1 Year 1 Year 1
    Prob Cash Flow Prob Cash Flow Prob Cash Flow
    0.30 RM300 0.15 RM100 0.25 RM200
    0.40 500 0.35 200 0.75 800
    0.30 700 0.35 600
    0.15 900
    Using an interest rate of 8 percent, find the expected present value of these uncertain
    cash flows.

    Kamel recently invested RM2,566.70 in a project that promises 12 percent rate of return
    per year. The cash flows are expected to be as follows:
    1 RM325
    2 400
    3 550
    4 ?
    5 750
    6 800
    What is the cash flow at the end of the 4th year?

    Solution Summary

    In this solution three problems of cash flows have been computed and explained. Two include uneven cash flows and the third illustrates the decrease in the purchasing power with inflation. An Excel file shows all computations.
