# Present Value A farm is expected to yield a continuous flow of profit at the rate of $75,000 per year. Assuming an annual interest rate of 8% compounded continuously, what is the present value of the farm(a) for 20 years?(b) forever? (a) To determine To calculate: The present value of the farm if the continuous flow of profit at rate of$75,000 per year and interest rate is 8% compounded continuously for 20 years.

Explanation

Given Information:

Provided information is:

Profit is P=$75,000 and annually interest rate is r=8%. Formula used: Present value of Perpetuity: Present value=P0tertdt Here, P is the size of each annual payment, t is the time and r is the annual interest rate in decimal form. Calculation: Consider the provided information and recall the formula for present value. Present value=P0tertdt Interest in fraction form is: r=8%=8100=0.08 Substitute$75,000 for P and 0

(b)

To determine

The present value of the farm if the continuous flow of profit at rate of \$75,000 per year and interest rate is 8% compounded continuously for forever.
