You have lived in the house for;12 years (so there are 18 years left on the mortgage)?;b. You have lived in the house for;20 years (so there are 10 years left on the mortgage)?;c. You have lived in the house for;12 years (so there are 18 years left on the mortgage) and you;decide to pay off the mortgage;immediatelybefore;the twelfth payment is due?;=;4-22. You are 25 years old and;decide to start saving for your retirement. You plan to save $5000 at;the end of each year (so the first;deposit will be one year from now), and will make the last;deposit when you retire at age 65.;Suppose you earn 8% per year on your retirement savings.;a. How much will you have saved;for retirement?;b. How much will you have saved if;you wait until age 35 to start saving (again, with your first;deposit at the end of the year)?;4-23. Your grandmother has been;putting $1000 into a savings account on every birthday since your;first (that is, when you turned;1). The account pays an interest rate of 3%.

The first payment will occur in a year;and will be $1000. Each year after;that, you will receive a payment on the anniversary of the last;payment that is 8% larger than the;last payment. This pattern of payments will go on forever. If;the interest rate is 12% per year;a. What is today?s value of the;bequest?;b. What is the value of the;bequest immediately after the first payment is made?;4-25. You are thinking of building;a new machine that will save you $1000 in the first year.

You expect;that the drug?s profits will be $2 million in its first year and that;this amount will grow at a rate of;5% per year for the next 17 years. Once the patent expires;other pharmaceutical companies;will be able to produce the same drug and competition will;likely drive profits to zero.

Analysts predict that its earnings will grow at 30% per;year for the next five years.;After that, as competition increases, earnings growth is expected to;slow to 2% per year and continue;at that level forever. Your company has just announced;earnings of $1,000,000. What is;the present value of all future earnings if the interest rate is 8%?;(Assume all cash flows occur at;the end of the year.).;4-30. Your brother has offered to;give you $100, starting next year, and after that growing at 3% for;the next 20 years.

How much money will you need to;deposit into the account today?;b.

You have decided to buy a;perpetuity. The bond makes one payment at the end of every year;forever and has an interest rate;of 5%.
