There are four questions. Interest rates are for one year. The exam is closed book with one notecard. Unless specified otherwise, all answers must have the following: 1) Given quantities and objective 2) Cash flow diagram with values, interest, and periods. 3) Equation used to solve the problem. For example, (F/P, 6%, 4) 4) The value of the equation (e.g. F = 1.2625P) and how it was obtained (eg. Formula F = P(1 + 0.06)4) or interest table (Appendix D) and interpolation or approximation (if any). 5) Answer highlighted.

1. Given the equation below, reconstruct the original cash flow diagram (50 points): F = $1200(F/A, 10%, 5) + [$500 - $200(P/G, 10%, 5)](F/P, 10%, 5) + $500(F/P, 10%, 10)

2. 20 months ago, Brian Paul borrowed $200,000 from First American to start a microlamination business.

Now, Brian’s business is doing well and he wants to repay the entire loan in a single payment. How much must he pay? (50 points) (There is an alternative solution using B20 = P – (A – Pi) (F/A, i, n))
