3-1. I. Present Value of a single Amount: Calculate the present value of Tk. 6000 to be (a) received
one year from now; (b) received at the end of five years; (c) received at the end of fifteen years.
Assume 8 percent discounting rate.
II. Present Value of an Ordinary Annuity: Determine the present value of Tk. 700 paid at the
end of each of the next 10 years. Assume 12 percent rate of interest.
III. Present Value of a Stream of Cash Flows: Assuming 10 percent discount rate, compute,
the, present value of Tk.ll00; Tk. 900; Tk.1500 and Tk. 700 to be received at the end of one
through four years.

3-10 Exactly ten years from now Mr. Rahman will start receiving a pension of Tk.50,000 a year. The
payment will continue for five years. How much is the pension worth now, if Mr. Rahman's expected
rate of return is 12 percent?
SOLUTION: Present value of a deferred annuity:
We can take the help of a time line to better understand the problem and finding the appropriate
solution. It is said that Mr. Rahman will start receiving pension ten years from now and it will
continue for five years. So, it will be a payment of annuity format and as after 10 years the payment
will start, it will take the form of a deferred annuity.

3-14 A company has decided to set up a sinking fund to replace an, asset in 6 years time. The value
of the fund after 6 years must be Tk. 80,000 and, the fund is expected to earn interest at the
rate of 8 percent per annum.
A. What must be the annual payment into the fund, commencing at the end of year 1 and with a final
payment the end of year 6?
B. What will be the total value of annual payments into the fund?
C. Is there any difference between your value in (b) and Tk. 80,000? If so, why does it exist?
SOLUTION:
A. Sinking Fund Requirement: We can solve the future value of an annuity formula to find out the
required payment:

## B. Total value of the payments:

Each PMT will be: 10,905. As there will be total 6 payments,
So the total value will be: 10,905 x 6 = 65,430
C. There is difference between total value and the sinking fund requirement. It happens because of
the interest earnings on each installment.
3-15 A company raises Tk. 75,000 loan at a 10 percent annual rate of interest. The interest payment
is Tk. 7,500 each year. The principal of the loan i.e. Tk.75,000 must be repaid at the end of 5
years. The company decides to provide for this repayment by setting up a sinking fund into which it
can afford to put Tk. 12,000 per annum for 5 years starting at the end of the first year. Interest
earned in the sinking fund will be 9 percent.
(A)

Will the fund be large enough at the end of 5 years to repay the loan?
If not, what should be the annual payment into the fund?

Tk.10,500 in monthly equal installment over next 20 years. Should you accept the offer? If the
insurance company offers Tk. 11,500 every month instead of Tk. 10,500 what will be your decision?

Present value of an ordinary annuity formula can be solved for the requirement:
When the payment is 10,500:

1 1 i
PVAn (Ordinary Annuity ) PMT

Comment: No, I shall not accept the offer, because the total present value of the annual payment is
less than the initial investment.
