If you require a 9 percent return on your investments, which would you prefer?
a. $5,000 today
b. $15,000 five years from today
c. $1,000 per year for 15 years

First, you have to find the present value for three alternatives.

a. present value will be $5,000

b. PV = FV/(1 + R)N where PV is the present value
FV is the future value
R is the interest rate
N is the period

PV = 15,000/(1 + 0.09)5
PV = 9,748.97

c. PVA = W x 1 - 1 where PVA is the present value
(1 + R)N W is the amount required of annuity each year
R R is the interest rate
N is the period
PVA = 1,000 x 1 - 1
(1 + 0.09)15
0.09

PVA = 8,060.69

We will prefer b. because the present value is the highest.

4.
The Mutual Assurance and Life Company is offering an insurance policy under either of the following two terms:
a. Make a series of 12 payments of $1,200 at the beginning of each of the next 12 years (the first payment being due today)
b. Make a single lump sum payment today of $10,000 and receive coverage for the next 12 years
If you had investment opportunities offering an 8 percent annual return, which alternative would you prefer?

Find the present value for first term.

PVA = 1,200 x 1 - 1 + 1,200
(1 + 0.08)11
0.08

PVA = 8,566.76 + 1,200 = 9,766.76

Choose the first term because the present value is lower.
