Answer #1

**Answer:**

Assume that Jay can earn an interest rate is 10% per year on his money.

Year | Maintenance cost($) | Present value of Maintenance cost($) |

2 | 10000 | 10000*(P/F,10%,2)=10000*0.8264=8,265 |

3 | 9000 | 9000*(P/F,10%,3)=9000*0.7513=6762 |

4 | 8000 | 8000*(P/F,10%,4)=8000*0.6830=5465 |

5 | 7000 | 7000*(P/F,10%,5)=7000*0.6209=4346 |

Total | 24838 |

**Jay should have $24,838 in his bank account now to be
able to pay the maintenance costs for next 5 years.**

**Cash flow diagram will be as follows:**

For calculating present value following formula can also be used:

Maintenance cost/(1+interest rate)^{n}; n is year in
which maintenance cost is incurred.
