Solution
The cash flows are simply an annuity with four payments
(since its quarterly) for five years or 20 payments we can
use the PVA equation
Annuity amount= \$ 2900, Rate(r)= 0.51%, Time(n)= 5
years (or 20 quarters )
PVA= annuity amount × [1 - (1 / (1 + r)n)] / r
PVA= \$ 2900 x[ 1-{ 1/(1+0.0051)20)]/0.0051
PVA= \$ 55,006.94
