1. The PV of a perpetuity paying \$1 at the end of every three years is 125/91. Find i.
2. There is \$40,000 in a fund which is accumulating at 4% per annum convertible continuously. If the
money is withdrawn continuously at the rate of \$2400 per annum, how long will the fund last?
3.A perpetuity immediate has annual payments of 1, 3, 5, 7, … If the PV of the 6th and 7th payments are
equal, find the PV of the perpetuity.
4. A 20-yr annuity with annual payments pays \$600 immediately and each subsequent payment is 5%
greater than the preceding payment. The annual effective interest rate is 10.25%.
a) Find the PV of this annuity.
b) Find the rate of interest i' such that the PV would be equal to the PV of a 20-year level annuity-due
paying \$600 in payments, at an effective interest rate of i'.
5. Paula wishes to accumulate \$60,000 in a fund at the end of 25 years. She plans to deposit \$80 in the
fund at the end of each of the first 120 months. She then deposits \$80+x in the fund at the end of each
of the last 180 months. If i = 3.66%, find x.
6. You are given a perpetuity, with annual payments as follows:
a) Payments of 1 at the end of the first year and every three years after that.
b) Payments of 2 at the end of the second year and every three years after that.
c) Payments of 3 at the end of the third year and every three years after that.
The interest rate is 5% convertible semiannually. Calculate the PV of this perpetuity.
7. Ted purchases a perpetuity-immediate that makes annual payments. The first payment is 100, and
each payment thereafter, increases by 10.
Rob purchases a perpetuity-due which makes annual payments of 180.
Using the same effective interest i &gt; 0, the PV of both perpetuities are equal.
Calculate i.
