Would this project be a good investment? Or would it be better to invest $52M in a bond paying 8% annually?

Answer #1

As per rules I will answer the first 4 sub parts of this question

1: PV=25000

Rate=7%

FV= $50,000

Period taken for amount to double= =NPER(7%,,-25000,50000) = 10.24 years

2:PV= 15000

Rate=12%

N=8

FV after 8 years= =FV(12%,8,,-15000)= $37,139.45

He has enough money to buy the car.

3:N=20

PV= 57000

Rate = 8%

FV of the investment = =FV(8%,20,,-57000)= $265,674.56

They do not have enough money to buy the house in 20 years

PV of $450,000 = =PV(8%,20,,450000) = $96,546.69

Hence additional amount required= 96,546.69- 57000 = $39,546.69

4: FV=$250, N= 3,Rate= 5%

Price= =PV(5%,3,,250)= 215.96
