Let us assume that payments are made in the beginning of period

Present worth of 1 year subscription option=45*(P/A,0.10,6)*(1+0.10)

Let us calculate the interest factor

Present worth of 1 year subscription option=45*4.3553*1.10=$215.59 Present worth of 3 year subscription option=118+118*(P/F,0.10,3) Let us calculate the interest factor (P/F,0.10,3)=1/(1+0.10)^3=0.7513 Present worth of 3 year subscription option=118*+118*0.7513=$206.65

We can observe that 3-year option is cheaper. I shall prefer it.
