Eco 200: present value

(individual) What is the present value of each of the following when discounted at interest rates of 4 and 15 percent?

  1. A $10,000 prize in a limerick-writing contest, to be received one year from now.
  2. A $10,000 cash legacy from your Aunt Mehitabel, to be received when you reach your 25th birthday. (If you have already passed it, choose some other birthday).
  3. $10,000 per year for each of the next ten years, beginning one year from now, as first prize for telling in 25 words or less why you like a detergent.
  4. Ownership of an office building from which you expect to receive an annual net income of $10,000 per year for each of the next 30 years, at the end of which time you expect to sell the building and land for $100,000. Assume the annual income amounts are all received at the end of each year.

    I don't plan to delete my LJ (I paid for permanent status, dammit), but this will be the last post. I don't plan to read it anymore, either…

  • Unemployed

    Turns out my insurance is cut off at midnight tonight, not the end of the month. In a way, that's a good thing. Now I'll move my appointment…

  • Home from the cruise, off to Sunnyvale

    A week off, but tomorrow I head to the home office for a week there.
