## Solutions

##### Expert Solution

Part (a):

Cash flow is as follows:

$100$100

↑                    ↑

Year 0-------……..----------10-------------11---------------12------…….

Value of investment (perpetuity) one year before commencement (Pn)= C/r

Present worth =Pn/(1+r)^n

Where

C= yearly payment (given as $100) r= interest rate (given as 6.125%) and n= Period till commencement, less 1 = 10 years Plugging the values, Present worth= (100/0.06125)/(1+0.06125)^10 = 1632.65306/ 1.8335358 =$890.44

Part (b):

Cash flows will increase at 1% per year

Cash flow is as follows:

$90$90.90         $91.81 ↑ ↑ ↑ Year 0-------……..----------10-------------11---------------12-------------13……. Value of investment (growing perpetuity) one year before commencement (Pn)= C/(r-g) Present worth =Pn/(1+r)^n Where C= First payment (given as$90)

r= interest rate (given as 6.125%)

g= Growth rate after first payment (given as 1%) and

n= Period till commencement, less 1 = 10 years

Plugging the values,

Present worth= (90/(0.06125-0.01))/(1+0.06125)^10
