 PVOrdinary Annuity = C*[(1-(1+i/(f*100))^(-n*f))/(i/(f*100))] C = Cash flow per period i = interest rate n = number of payments I f = frequency of payment PV= 2000*((1-(1+ 7.5/1200)^(-15*12))/(7.5/1200)) PV = 215746.85 Using Calculator: press buttons "2ND"+"FV" then assign PMT =2000 I/Y =7.5/12 N =15*12 FV = 0 CPT PV Using Excel =PV(rate,nper,pmt,FV,type) =PV(7.5/(12*100),12*15,,PV,)

Choose monthly payment as PV is more than immediate payment
