33.Growing Annuity Southern California Publishing Company is trying to decide whether to revise its popular textbook, Financial Psychoanalysis Made Simple. The company has estimated that the revision will cost $50,000. Cash flows from increased sales will be $12,000the first year. These cash flows will increase by 6 percent per year. The book will go out of print five years from now. Assume that the initial cost is paid now and revenues are received at the end of each year. If the company requires an 11 percent return for such an investment, should it undertake the revision? (Ross, Stephen A.. Corporate Finance, 8th Edition. Irwin/McGraw-Hill, 112006. 4.8).

37Calculating Annuity Present Values You want to borrow $45,000 from your local bank tobuy a new sailboat. You can afford to make monthly payments of $950, but no more.

15. For discrete compounding, to find the EAR, we use the equation:
EAR = [1 + (APR / m)]m – 1
= .0719, or 7.19%
EAR = [1 + (.07 / 4)]4 – 1
EAR = [1 + (.16 / 12)]12 – 1
= .1723, or 17.23%
= .1163, or 11.63%
EAR = [1 + (.11 / 365)]365 – 1
To find the EAR with continuous compounding, we use the equation:
EAR = er – 1
EAR = e.12 – 1 = .1275, or 12.75%
