##### Expert Solution

The present worth = 270,000(P/F, 8%, 2) + 120,000(P/F, 8%, 4) + 100,000(P/F, 8%, 5)

= 270,000(0.8573) + 120,000(0.7350) + 100,000(0.6806)

= 231,471 + 88,200 + 68,060

= 387,731

Equivalent annual worth = 387,731(A/P, 8%, 5)

= 387,731(0.2505)

= $97,126.62 Thus, the equivalent annual worth of the cash flow series is$97,126.62
