Compute the following: a. The present value of $25,000 each year for 4 years at a 7 percent interest rate b. The present value of$152,000 each year for 5 years at a 6 percent interest rate c. The present value of $60,000 each year for 10 years at a 6.5 percent interest rate (a) To determine Calculate the present value. Explanation The present value (PV) can be calculated using the formula given below: PV=An(1+i)n (1) Here An is the actual amount of income. i is the interest rate. n is the number of years in the future. Since An is$25,000, i is 7%, and n is 4 years, the value of PV can be calculated using Equation-1 as follows:

PV=$25,000(1+0.07)1+$25,000(1+0

(b)

To determine
