Report
Chapter 2, Problem 1.
Find the correct numerical value for
the following factors from the
interest tables.
1. (F/P,8%,25)
2. (P/A,3%,8)
3. (P/G,9%,20)
4. (F/A,15%,18)
5. (A/P,30%,15)
Chapter 2, Solution 1.
1. (F/P,8%25) = 6.8485
2. (P/A,3%,8) = 7.0197
3. (P/G,9%,20) = 61.7770
4. (F/A,15%,18) = 75.8364
5. (A/P,30%,15) = 0.30598
Chapter 2, Problem 3.
Pressure Systems, Inc., manufactures
high-accuracy liquid-level transducers. It
is investigating whether it should update
certain equipment now or wait to do it
later. If the cost now is $200,000, what
will the equivalent amount be 3 years
from now at an interest rate of 10% per
year?
Chapter 2, Solution 3.
F = 200,000(F/P,10%,3)
= 200,000(1.3310)
= $266,200
Chapter 2, Problem 6.
Thompson Mechanical Products is planning to
set aside $150,000 now for possibly replacing
its large synchronous refiner motors whenever
it becomes necessary. If the replacement isn’t
needed for 7 years, how much will the
company have in its investment set-aside
account if it achieves a rate of return of 18%
per year?
Chapter 2, Solution 6.
F = 150,000(F/P,18%,7)
= 150,000(3.1855)
= $477,825
Chapter 2, Problem 10.
What is the present worth of a
future cost of $162,000 to
Corning, Inc., 6 years from now
at an interest rate of 12% per
year?
Chapter 2, Solution 10.
P = 162,000(P/F,12%,6)
= 162,000(0.5066)
= $82,069
Chapter 2, Problem 14.
The current cost of liability
insurance for a certain consulting
firm is $65,000. If the insurance cost
is expected to increase by 4% each
year, what will be the cost 5 years
from now?
Chapter 2, Solution 14.
F = 65,000(F/P,4%,5)
= 65,000(1.2167)
= $79,086
Chapter 2, Problem 18.
How much money could RTT Environmental
Services borrow to finance a site reclamation
project if it expects revenues of $280,000 per
year over a 5-year cleanup period? Expenses
associated with the project are expected to be
$90,000 per year. Assume the interest rate is
10% per year.
Chapter 2, Solution 18.
P = (280,00090,000)(P/A,10%,5)
= 190,000(3.7908)
= $720,252
Chapter 2, Problem 25.
Find the numerical value of the
following factors by (a) interpolation and
(b) using the appropriate formula.
1. (P/F,18%,33)
2. (A/G,12%,54)
Chapter 2, Solution 25.
(a) 1. Interpolate between n = 32 and n = 34:
1/2 = x/0.0014
x = 0.0007
(P/F,18%,33) = 0.0050 – 0.0007 = 0.0043
2. Interpolate between n = 50 and n = 55:
4/5 = x/0.0654
x = 0.05232
(A/G,12%,54) = 8.1597 + 0.05232 = 8.2120
(b) 1. (P/F,18%,33) = 1/(1+0.18)33 = 0.0042
2. (A/G,12%,54) = {(1/0.12) – 54/[(1+0.12)54 –1}
= 8.2143

$3000 and decreases by $200 each year
through year 10. (a) Determine the value
of the gradient G; (b) determine the
amount of cash flow in year 8; and (c)
determine the value of n for the gradient.
Chapter 2, Solution 27
(a) G = $200 (b) CF8 = $1600
(c) n = 10
Chapter 2, Problem 38.
A start-up direct marketer of car parts expects
to spend $1 million the first year for
advertising, with amounts decreasing by
$100,000 each year. Income is expected to be
$4 million the first year, increasing by
$500,000 each year. Determine the equivalent
annual worth in years 1 through 5 of the
company’s net cash flow at an interest rate of
16% per year.
Chapter 2, Solution 38.
A = [4 + 0.5(A/G,16%,5)] – [1 –
0.1(A/G,16%,5)
= [4 + 0.5(1.7060)] – [1 –0.1(1.7060)]
= $4,023,600
or; find the PW of inflows and Outflows then
calculate corresponding A as I demonstrated this
solution method in class
Chapter 2, Problem 40.
A chemical engineer planning for her
retirement will deposit 10% of her salary each
year into a high-technology stock fund. If her
salary this year is $60,000 (i.e., end of year 1)
and she expects her salary to increase by 4%
each year, what will be the present worth of
the fund after 15 years if it earns 4% per year?
Chapter 2, Solution 40.
For
g = i,
P = 60,000(0.1)[15/(1 + 0.04)]
= $86,538
Chapter 2, Problem 47.
A northern California consulting firm wants to
start saving money for replacement of
network servers. If the company invests
$3000 at the end of year 1 and increases the
amount invested by 5% each year, how much
will be in the account 4 years from now if it
earns interest at a rate of 8% per year?
Chapter 2, Solution 47.
Find P and then convert to F.
P = 3000{1 – [(1+0.05)4/(1+0.08)4}]}/(0.08 –0.05)
= 3000{3.5522}
= $10,657
F = 10,657(F/P,8%,4)
= 10,657(1.3605)
= $14,498
Chapter 2, Problem 49.
What compound interest rate per
year is equivalent to a 12% per
year simple interest rate over a
15-year period?
Chapter 2, Solution 49.
Simple: Total interest = P(0.12)(15) = 1.8P
Compound: Total interest = P(1-i)^15-P
Total(simp.)=Total(comp.)
P(1-i)^15-P = 1.8P
(1-i)^15=2.8
i = 7.11%
(compounding rate)
Chapter 2, Problem 52.
An investment of $600,000
increased to $1,000,000 over a 5year period. What was the rate of
return on the investment?
Chapter 2, Solution 52.
1,000,000 = 600,000(F/P,i,5)
(F/P,i,5) = 1.6667
i = 10.8% (Excel)
Chapter 2, Problem 55.
A new company that makes mediumvoltage soft starters spent $85,000 to
build a new website. Net income was
$30,000 the first year, increasing by
$15,000 each year. What rate of return
did the company make in its first 5
years?
Chapter 2, Solution 55.
85,000 = 30,000(P/A,i,5) +
15,000(P/G,i,5)
Solve for i by trial and error or
spreadsheet:
i = 50%
(Excel)
Chapter 2, Problem 58.
An engineer who invested very well
plans to retire now because she has
$2,000,000 in her ORP account. How
long will she be able to withdraw
$100,000 per year (beginning 1 year
from now) if her account earns interest at
a rate of 4% per year?
Chapter 2, Solution 58.
2,000,000 = 100,000(P/A,4%,n)
(P/A,4%,n) = 20.000
From 4% table, n is between 40 and
45 years; by spreadsheet, 42 > n > 41
Therefore, n = 41 years
Chapter 2, Problem 61.
How many years will it take for a
uniform annual deposit of size A
to accumulate to 10 times the size
of a single deposit if the rate of
return is 10% per year?
Chapter 2, Problem 61.
10A = A(F/A,10%,n)
(F/A,10%,n) = 10.000
From 10% table, n is between 7 and
8 years; therefore, n = 8 years
Chapter 2, Solution 65.
160 = 235(P/F,i,5)
(P/F,i,5) =0.6809
From tables, i = 8%
Answer is (c)
Chapter 2, Problem 67.

now. At what interest rate are the two options
equivalent to each other?
(a) 4%
(b) 5%
(c) 6%
(d) 7%
Chapter 2, Solution 67.
109.355 = 7(P/A,i,25)
(P/A,i,25) = 15.6221
From tables, i = 4%
Answer is (a)
Chapter 2, Problem 70.

closest to
(a) $60,600
(b) $98,300
(c) $157,200
(d) $173,400
Chapter 2, Solution 70.
P = 8000(P/A,10%,10) +
500(P/G,10%,10)
= 8000(6.1446) + 500(22.8913)
= $60,602.45
Answer is (a)

be closest to
(a) $22,580
(b) $23,380
(c) $29,640
(d) Over $30,000
Chapter 2, Solution 77.
A = 100,000(A/F,12%,3)

Answer is (c)
Chapter 2, Problem 78.

closest to
(a) $670,500
(b) $902,800
(c) $1,180,900
(d) $1,333,300
Chapter 2, Solution 78.
A = 10,000(F/A,12%,25)

= $1,333,339
Answer is (d)
Chapter 2, Problem 80.
Maintenance costs for a regenerative thermal
oxidizer have been increasing uniformly for 5
years. If the cost in year 1 was $8000 and it
increased by $900 per year through year 5, the
present worth of the costs at an interest rate of
10% per year is closest to
(a) $31,670
(b) $33,520
(c) $34,140
(d) Over $36,000
Chapter 2, Solution 80.
P = 8,000(P/A,10%,5) +

= 8,000(3.7908) + 900(6.8618)
= $36,502
Answer is (d)
