# Capital value Suppose that a business provides a continuous income stream with an annual rate of flow at time t given by f ( t ) = 10 , 800 e 0.06 t (dollars per year). If money is worth 12 % compounded continuously, find the capital value of the business.

To determine

To calculate: The capital value of the business if the annual rate of flow at time t is given by f(t)=10,800e0.06t in thousands of dollars per year and the annual interest rate is 12% compounded continuously.

Explanation

Given Information:

Annual flow rate at time t is given by,

f(t)=10,800e0.06t

And the interest rate is 12% compounded continuously.

Formula used:

The capital value for a continuous income stream f(t) and rate r compounded continuously is given by,

C=0f(t)ertdt

If the limit defining the improper integral is a unique finite number, then integral converges else it diverges,

af(x)dx=limbabf(x)dx

According to the exponential rule of integrals,

exdx=ex+C

Calculation:

It is provided that the annual flow rate at time t is given by,

f(t)=10,800e0.06t

And, the provided interest rate is 12% compounded continuously.

Now, the capital value for a continuous income stream f(t) and rate r compounded continuously is given by,

C=0f(t)ertdt

Now, to obtain the capital value, substitute 10,800e0.06t for f(t) and 0.12 for r in above formula to get,

C=010,800e0.06te0
