1. In this case Annual payment=A=$2000
Number of years=n=10
Interest rate=i=12%
Present value of given annuity=A*(P/A, i, n)=2000*P(P/2000, 12%,10)
(P/A, i, n)= 1/i*(1-1/(1+i)^n)=1/12%*(1-1/(1+12%)^10)= 5.65022
Present value of given annuity=2000*5.65022=$11,300.44

2.a) $500 in 5 years at 10% compounded annually with annual payments?
Number of periods=n=5
Interest rate=10%
Present value of loan=P=$500
We have to find annual payments ...
