tchrwill,
The amount that must be paid (Present Value)for an annuity with a periodic payment of $15,000 to be made at the end of each year for 10 years, at an interest rate of 11% compounded annually derives from
P = R[1(1+i)^(n)]/i where P = the present value, R = the periodic payment, n = the number of payment periods and i = the decimal interest paid per period.
Therefore, P = 15,000[1(1.11)^10]/.11 = ?
