hi thanks for assignment remember me in prayers
Lucky plese which formula u used in present valu i didnt seen whole of the hand note MGT 411and as well as formula in the soultion of tariq bahi is a correct or not i think that was also worng and formula is
Pv (1+ ( i/n ))^n but i think the correct formula is FV = PV(1 + i)^n in part (A) as well as i did not under stand the value of i=0.5 and again value of i=0.6 any body tell me who can colcolate the assignment.
pls chek the solution of finacial mngmnt 1st ASSIGNMENT that is by teacher,,,us ma use kia ha ye formula,,but thora sa differnt ker k,
formula that i have used its also same as this of you...acording to ur formula
Pcp = 50/(1+0.06) + 50/(1+0.06)^2 + 50/(1+0.06)^3 + 50/(1+0.06)^4 + 50/(1+06)^5 + 50/(1+0.06)^6 + 50/(1+0.06)^7 + 50/(1+0.06)^8 + 50/(1+0.06)^9 + 50/(1+0.06)^10 + 50/(1+0.06)^11 + 50/(1+0.06)^12 + 50/(1+0.06)^13 + 50/(1+0.06)^14 + 50/(1+0.06)^15 + 50/(1+0.06)^16 + 50/(1+0.06)^17 + 50/(1+0.06)^17 + 50/(1+0.06)^18 + 50/(1+0.06)^19 + 50/(1+0.06)^20 + 50/(1+0.06)^21 + 50/(1+0.06)^22 +50/(1+0.06)^22 + 50/(1+0.06)^23 + 50/(1+0.06)^24 + 50/(1+0.06)^25 + 50/(1+0.06)^26 + 50/(1+0.06)^27 + 50/(1+0.06)^28 + 50/(1+0.06)^29 + 50/(1+0.06)^30 page no 41 on hand out of mgt411,
then calculation will be lenghty,,so this is short ct and from book of FM..FOR MORE DETAIL PLS ADD MY ID IN UR ACCOUNT,,THEN WE DISCUSE IT DEAR
