Six months ago, you purchased a tract of land in an area where a new
industrial park was rumored to be planned. This land cost you \$110,000, and
the seller offered you an interest-free loan for 70 percent of the land cost.

for the developer has just offered you \$190,000 for your land. If you accept
this offer, what will be your holding period return on this investment?
