Expert's answer


Question 1;

Time Period= 6 years * 12 = 72 months

Interest % = = 0.50% ( 6%=0.06)


Present Value of Option 1 = -30,000,000


Present Value of Option 2:

Present Value of Option 2 = -28,852,781.27

Therefore, option 2 will be beneficial for when either buying house in single payment or buying

on lease.

Question 2;

Investment = 30,000,000

Selling Price = 35,000,000

Time Period = 6 years * 12 = 72 months

Interest % = = 0.50%          ( 6%=0.06)


Return = -1

Return =-1

Return = (1.167 0.1389)-1

Return = 0.214% per month


Hence, the deal is not profitable for us since the realized return from the transaction is less than the required rate of return.
