i = 12%
If the first would pay \$250,000 at the end of next three years, then on the executive&rsquo;s sixty-fifth birthday he will have FV1 = (250,000*1.12 + 250,000*1.12^2 + 250,000*1.12^3)*1.12^17 = \$6,487,255.14. If the second would pay \$100,000 at the end of next five years plus retirement account would be set up that would pay a bonus of \$3,000,000 on the executive&rsquo;s sixty-fifth birthday, then FV2 = (100,000*1.12 + 100,000*1.12^2 + 100,000*1.12^3 + 100,000*1.12^4 + 100,000*1.12^5)*1.12^15 + 3,000,000 = \$6,894,545.51.
So, the second offer should be accepted.
