1. Susan Robinson is planning for her retirement. She is 30 years old today and would like to have $600,000 when she turns 55. She estimates that she will be able to earn a 9 percent rate of return on her retirement investments over time: she wants to set aside a constant amount of money every year (at the end of the year) to help achieve her objective. How much money must Robinson invest at the end of each of the next 25 years to realize her goal of $600,000 at the end of that time?

$600,000 = PMT(FVIFA.09,25) = PMT(84.701) PMT = $7,083.74

2. Two investment opportunities are open to you: Investment 1 and Investment 2. Each has an initial cost of $10,000. Assuming that you desire a 10 percent return on your initial investment, compute the net present value of the two alternatives and evaluate their relative attractiveness: INVESTMENT 1 INVESTMENT 2 CASH FLOWS YEAR CASH FLOW YEAR 5,000 1 8,000 1 6, 000 2 7,000 2 7,000 ; 3 6,000 3 8,000 4 5,000 4

NPV1 = -$10,000 + $5,000(0.909) + $6,000(0.826) + $7,000(0.751) + $8,000(0.683)
= $10,222
NPV2 = -$10,000 + $8,000(0.909) + $7,000(0.826) + $6,000(0.751) + $5,000(0.683)
= $10,975 This is the preferred alternative.

3. Your great-uncle Claude is 82 years old. Over the years, he has accumulated savings of $80,000. He estimates that he will live another 10 years at the most and wants to spend his savings by then. (If he lives longer than that, he figures you will be happy to take care of him) Uncle Claude places his $80,000 into an account earning 10 percent annually and sets it up in such a way that he will be making 10 equal annual withdrawals-the first one occurring one year from now- such that his account balance will be zero at the

Although increased cost on R&D weighs on its financial status, overall status of the company is still healthy enough. However, there are still several issues which the company has to address to achieve…
