idea solution u can easily solve your assigment

Attachments:

your calculation is wrong in bold form

see this

Present value= c x F x 1-(1+r)-t /r + F/ (1+r)t

= 3% x 1,000 x 1-(1+2%)-20 /2% + 1,000/ (1+2%)20

= 0.03 x 1000 X 1- (1+ 0.02)-20 /0.02 + 1,000/(1+ 0.02)-20

= 30 x 1- (1.02)-20 /0.02 + 1,000/ (1.02)20

= 30 x 1- 0.673/0.02 + 1,000/1.486

=30 x 0.0327/0.02 +1,000/1.486

= 9.81/0.02 + 1,000/1.486

= 1498.5 + 672.9= 2171.4

right solution is

first we have to calculate PVAF

i.e. c * [(1-1/(1+r)^t]/r  + Face v/(1+r)t

(c * 490.54) + 672.97

1163
