a) r = 15%/2 = 7.5% (semi-annually), n = 5 * 2 = 10 semi-annual periods
PV = $775/(1 + 7.5%)10
PV = $775/2.0160
PV = $376.02
b) r = 15%/4 = 3.75% (quarterly), n = 5 * 4 = 20 quarterly periods
PV = $775/(1 + 3.35%)20
PV = $775/2.0882
PV = $371.14
c) r = 15%/12 = 1.25% (monthly), n = 1 * 12 = 12 monthly periods
PV = $775/(1 + 1.25%)12
PV = $775/1.1608
PV = $667.67
