UNEVEN CASH FLOW STREAM a. Find the present values of the following cash flow streams at a 5% discount rate. b. What are the PVs of the streams at a 0% discount rate?

a.

Summary Introduction

To calculate: Present value of cash flow stream at 5% discounting rate.

Present value of cash flow:

It is also called as discounted value. It defines that amount of money that invested at a given rate of interest will increases the amount of future cash flow at that particular time in future.

Working Note to calculate discounting rate

Formula to calculate discounting rate for year 1

DiscountRate=1(1+Interestrate)Numberofyears=1(1+0.05)1=0.952381

Formula to calculate discounting rate for year 2

DiscountRate=1(1+Interestrate)Numberofyears=1(1+0
