2. Assume that you plan to buy a share of XYZ stock
Financial calculator solution:
Inputs: N = 6; I = 2; PV = -1,000; PMT = 0.
Output: FV = Rs.1, 126.16 = Rs.1, 126(rounded off).

7. Assume that you will receive Rs.2,000 a year in Years 1 through 5, Rs.3,000 a year in Years 6 through 8, and Rs.4,000 in Year 9, with all cash flows to be received at the end of the year. If you require a 14 percent rate of return, what is the present value of these cash flows? a. Rs. 9,851 b. Rs.13,250 c. Rs.11,714 d. Rs.15,129 e. Rs.17,353

Solution to Q.No. 7: Time Line: 0 14% 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 Yrs ├───────┼──────┼────────┼─────────┼───────┼────────┼───────┼─────┼── PV =? 2,000 2,000 2,000 2,000 2,000 3,000 3,000 3,000 4,000

Numerical solution:
PV = Rs.2,000((1-(1/1.145))/.14) + Rs.3,000([(1-(1/1.143))/.14] [1/1.145])+ Rs.4,000(1.149)= Rs.2,000(3.4331) + Rs.3,000(2.3216)(0.5194) + Rs.4,000(0.3075)
= Rs.6,866.20 + Rs.3,617.52 + Rs.1,230.00 = Rs.11,713.72 = Rs.11,714 (rounded off).

Financial calculator solution:
Using cash flows
Inputs: CF0 = 0; CF1 = 2,000; Nj = 5; CF2 = 3,000; Nj = 3; CF3 = 4,000; I = 14.
Output: NPV = Rs.11, 713.54 = Rs.11, 714 (rounded off).
