## Calculating Equivalent Uniform Annual Cost: Example Problem

Your County is planning to build a park. The initial cost for the park will amount to \$6,500,000. Annual maintenance and repairs will amount to:

\$25,000 for each of the first five years,

\$30,000 for each of the next ten years and,

\$35,000 for each of the next five years.

In addition, a major overhaul costing \$500,000 will be required at the end of the tenth year.

a) Use a constant interest rate of 5% and determine the equivalent uniform annual cost for a 20-year period.
