a.  What would the value be today if the payments occurred for 10 years? (Do not round intermediate calculations and round your answer to 2 decimal places, e.g., 32.16.) 
b. 
What would the value be today if the payments occurred for 35 years? (Do not round intermediate calculations and round your answer to 2 decimal places, e.g., 32.16.) 
c.  What would the value be today if the payments occurred for 65 years? (Do not round intermediate calculations and round your answer to 2 decimal places, e.g., 32.16.) 
d.  What would the value be today if the payments occurred forever? (Do not round intermediate calculations and round your answer to 2 decimal places, e.g., 32.16.) 

a.Present value of annuity=Annuity[1(1+interest rate)^time period]/rate
=$6300[1(1.05)^10]/0.05
=$6300*7.721734929
=$48646.93(Approx).
b.Present value of annuity=Annuity[1(1+interest rate)^time period]/rate
=$6300[1(1.05)^35]/0.05
=$6300*16.37419429
=$103,157.42(Approx).
c.Present value of annuity=Annuity[1(1+interest rate)^time period]/rate
=$6300[1(1.05)^65]/0.05
=$6300*19.16107033
=$120,714.74(Approx).
d.Present value of perpetuity=Annual cash flows/required rate
=(6300/0.05)
=$126,000
