3. Assume you own a painting. If you sold it now, you could get £500 for it. However, the amount that people will be willing to pay in the future increases by £25 in odd years (including the first one) and by £26 in even years, for the next 53 years. If the interest rate stays constant at 5%, when should you sell your painting?
(A) In 53 years’ time.
(B) In 20 years’ time.

If you sold right now and put the money in the bank, after one year you would have 500*(1.05) = 525. After two years you would have 525*(1.05) = 551.25. So, assuming you get no enjoyment from looking at the painting, go with E)
