    For this problem, I will give an example problem from my textbook with a solution for your review. I will then need you to develop one of your own examples illustrating the topic of present value. Your example should center around a hypothetical scenario that uses the same methods and formulas, but substitutes the situation and numbers for your own. Please put mine and your examples and solutions in a Word Document.

    EXAMPLE

    Present Value

    3. An insurance agent wishes to sell you a policy that will pay you $100,000 in 30 years. What is the value of this policy in today's dollars, if we assume a 9% inflation rate, compounded annually?

    PV = FV/(1 + i)n where PV is the present value
    FV is the future value
    i is the interest rate
    n is the period

    PV = 100,000/(1 + 0.09)30
    = 100,000/13.2677
    = 7,537.11
