Problem P9 17:
Jack Hammer
FV (Table 1) at 11% discount rate
2.00 x .901 = $1.80
2.20 x .802 = $1.79
2.40 x .731 = $1.75
33.00 x .731 = $24.12  $29.46
Problem P9  22:
Alternative Present Values: Your rich godfather has offered you a choice of one of the three following alternatives: $10,000 now; $2,000 a year for eight years; or $24,000 at the end of eight years.
Solution:
(first alternative) Present value of 10,000 received now: 10,000
(second alternative) Present Value of annuity of 2,000 for eight years:
Appendix D
PVa=AxPVifa
=2,000xPVifa (11%,8years)
=2,000x5.146
=10,292

Problem P10 24:
Friedman Steel Company will pay a dividend of $1.50 per share in the next 12 months (D1). The required rate of return (Ke) is 10 percent and the constant growth rate is 5 percent.
For Problem 24 we computed the present value of shares of common stock with a constant growth return. Problem 24 breaks down as follows:
Po = present value of common stock with constant growth returns
Do = most recent pershare dividend, which is $1.50 in this scenario
Ke = required return or the discount rate for each year, which is 10% g = constant growth rate or rate of growth, which is 5%
A. Compute Po
Po =Do (1 + g)1 / (1 + Ke)1, [$1.50 (1 + .05)1 / (1 + .10)1 = [$1.575 / (1 + .10)1] = $1.43 (PV of expected future returns using the Discounted Cash Flow formula ("DCF") which leads to the Constant Growth formula as follows:
Answer: Po = D1 / (Ke  g), [$1.43 / (.10  .05)] = $28.60
For parts b, c, and d in this problem all variables remain the same except the one specifically changed. Each question is independent of the others.)
B. Assume Ke, the required rate of return, goes up to 12 percent; what will be the new value of P0?
Ke = required return or the discount rate for each year, 12%

The socalled “third law of demand,” or “relative price theorem,” holds that a fixed cost added to a good of varying quality causes the consumer to prefer the category considered of higher quality to the lower. Recently a number of studies, keeping this theorem in mind have…
