Answer #1

**Solution to QUESTION-1**

**The amount to be deposited by Perlman
into the bond sinking fund at the end of each year**

Here, we have Future Value = $15,000,000

Annual interest rate (r) = 8.00% per year

Number of periods (n) = 10 Years

Annual deposit payment (P) = ?

Therefore, Future Value of an
Ordinary Annuity = P x [{(1+ r)^{n} - 1} / r ]

$15,000,00 = P x [{(1 +
0.08)^{10} - 1} / 0.08]

$15,000,00 = P x [(2.158924997 – 1) / 0.08]

$15,000,00 = P x [1.158924997 / 0.08]

$15,000,00 = P x 14.48656247

P = $15,000,000 / 14.48656247

P = $1,035,442.33

**“Hence, the amount to be
deposited by Perlman into the bond sinking fund at the end of each
year will be $1,035,442.33”**
