The following problem is similar, but not identical, to the first question in Problem 5.

What is the present value (PV) today of a stable cash flow of $87,000 per year that starts at the end of year 1 and continues forever (that is, in perpetuity)? The appropriate discount rate is 14% p.a. Round your answer to the nearest dollar. Do not include the $ symbol nor the separating comma, if any. Thus, for example, if the PV is $24,323.55 write 24324 in the answer box.

The three problems in the text should be straightforward.

We’ll also solve a more challenging set of problems in class. They pertain to perpetuities in which the periodic payments occur once every several years, and whose initial CF may occur at any time (i.e., it does not necessarily occur at t = 1).
