1. A store offers two payment plans. Under the instalment
plan, you pay twenty percent down and twenty percent of
the purchase price in each of the next four years. If you
pay the entire bill immediately, you can take a five percent
discount from the purchase price. If you can borrow funds
from a bank at four percent, which is the better deal? Hint:
it helps to assume certain purchase price, say, \$1,000.
Explain how did you get answer.
2. A cash-strapped young professional offers to buy your
car with four, equal annual payments of \$3,000, beginning
three years from today. Assuming you\'re indifferent to
cash versus credit, that you can invest at two percent
(effective annual rate), and you think the car is worth
\$11,000, should you accept?
3. Your annual pension plan withdrawals in retirement will
be half of your annual salary of \$100,000, or \$50,000. You
will draw thirty pension plan checks in retirement. Rate of
return on pension plan investments is four percent.
Assuming you and your employer will contribute to your
pension plan for thirty years, what is the amount of annual
contribution need to fund the plan? Solve the problem
using annuity formulas.
Solution
1. Under installment
Present value = 20% * \$1,000 + 20% * \$1,000 * [1 - (1 +
4%)-4] / 4%
