Money is worth 2.50% per quarter, compounded quarterly. Compute Present value if: Click here to view factor tables (a) \$55,240 immediate cash. (Round factor values to 5 decimal places, e.g. 1.25124 and final answer to 0 decimal places, e.g. 458,581.) Present value \$ 55240 (b) \$4,090 every 3 months payable at the end of each quarter for 5 years. (Round factor values to 5 decimal places, e.g. 1.25124 and final answer to 0 decimal places, e.g. 458,581.) Present value \$ (c) \$19,000 immediate cash and \$1,900 every 3 months for 10 years, payable at the beginning of each 3-month period. (Round factor values to 5 decimal places, e.g. 1.25124 and final answer to 0 decimal places, e.g. 458,581.) Present value \$ (d) \$4,090 every 3 months for 3 years and \$1,590 each quarter for the following 25 quarters, all payments payable at the end of each quarter. (Round factor values to 5 decimal places, e.g. 1.25124 and final answer to 0 decimal places, e.g. 458,581.) Present value \$ Which option would you recommend that Leon exercise?

1.
=55240

Using calculator, set the mode END
I/Y=2.5%
N=5*4
PMT=4090
FV=0
CPT PV=\$63,759.67

3.
Using calculator, set the mode BGN
I/Y=2.5%
N=10*4
PMT=1900
FV=0
CPT PV=\$48,887.65
PV of immediate cash of 19000=19000
Total Present Value=\$48,887.65+\$19,000=\$67,887.65

4.
Using calculator, set the mode END
I/Y=2.5%
N=25
PMT=1590
FV=0
CPT PV=\$29,294.76
This is PV at the end of 3 years
We now compute the pv of 1590 today

I/Y=2.5%
N=3*4
PMT=0
FV=x
CPT PV=\$21,782.29

This will be the present value of \$1590 payments

Using calculator, set the mode END
I/Y=2.5%
N=3*4
PMT=4090
FV=0
CPT PV=\$41,954.26

Total Present Value=\$21,782.29+\$41,954.26=\$63,736.55
