    Thank you for asking BrainMass. Here you go:

    a. $5,000 received each year for 5 years on the last day of each year if your investments pay 6 percent compounded annually.
    Cash Flow Stream: Annuity
    Type of annuity: Arrears
    Annual cash flow C= $5,000
    Number of years t = 5 years
    Frequency of compounding in a year f= 1
    Annual Interest rate R= 6%
    Interest rate for compouding period r = R/f=6%/1=6%
    PV of an annuity in arrears=C/r*(1-1/(1+r)^(f*t))= 5000/6%*(1-1/(1+6%)^(1*5))=$21061.82

    b. $5,000 received each quarter for 5 years on the last day of each quarter if your investments pay 6 percent compounded quarterly.
    Cash Flow Stream: ...

    Solution Summary

    This solution calculates both the present and future values for the identified annuity streams. Excel is used for future value calculations. Inputs for present value calculations are identified and can be easily plugged in to a financial calculator. Adjustments for PV of an annuity in advance from an annuity in arrears are calculated as well.
