This cash flow is equivalen o a $20,000 annual series wih a $1000/year gradien. Use he facor ables. 2. The effecive rae per monh is i = I... = 0 08 = m 12 Use he uniform series compound amoun facor. F = A(FjA, i%, n) Because compounding is monhly, n is he number of monhs. n= (35 yr) (12 ~n = 420 mo F=A((l+r1) = ($200) (( ) = $459,227 ($459,000) 3. The effecive rae per quarer is i =I...= 0 06 = m 4 There are four compounding periods during he year. n=4 p = ($20,000)(P I A, 6%, 10)  ($1000)(P /G, 6%, 10) = ($20,000)(7.3601)  ($1000)( ) = $117,600 ($118,000) 5. The effecive annual ineres rae is ie = ( 1 + :) m  1 = (1 + oi~5)121 = The oal fuure value is F= P(F/P,i%,n) = P(1 +i = ($5000)( ) 5 = $6417 The ineres available is ineres = F  P = $ $5000 =$1417 ($1420) (This problem can also be solved by calculaing he effecive ineres rae per period and compounding for 60 monhs.)

Therefore, calculae he fuure value as he sum of a single paymen and an annual series. F= P(FIP, r%, n) + A(FIA,r%, n) = P(ern) + A(ern 1) er 1 = ($10,000)eC0 05)( 21 (0.05}(21} 1) ) + ($1000) e  ( e(0.05} _ 1 = $64,808 ($64,800) 7.

MACRS depreciaion depends only on he original cos, no on he salvage cos or hours of operaion. Di = C(facor) D1 = ($2,500,000)(0.10) = $250, Book value is he iniial cos less he accumulaed depreciaion. Use he MACRS facors for a fiveyear recovery period. BV= C LDi j=l = C L ( C(facorj)) j=l 10. Firs, find he presen worh of all of he cash flow s. p = $500 + ($50)(P I A, 8%, 5) + ($50)(P I G, 8%, 4) + ($100)(PIF,8%,5) = $500 + ($50)(3.9927) + ($50)(4.6501) + ($100)(0.6806) = $1000 Nex, find he effecive uniform annual expense (cos).

Compue he presen worh of he benefis and coss for each alernaive. Salvage value should be couned as a decrease in cos, no as a benefi. For alernaive I, B = ($1500)(P I A, 8%, 15) = ($1500)(8.5595) = $12,839 c = $7000 ($500)(P IF, 8%, 15) = $7000 ($500)(0.3152) = $6842 For alernaive II, B = $12,839 = 1 88 c $6842.
