Step 1

Step  1:

Calculation of the present value factor of annuity:

Note:  while calculating the present value factor and the present value factor of annuity the term “r” and “n” denotes:

• r = Cost of the capital (8%)
• n= Life of an asset (7 year life)
Step 2

Step 2:

Calculation of the present value factor:
