Alternatively, under option B the employee receives a lump-sum payment equal to the present value of the payments described undeq option A.

Option A=1575(120mo.)=189000.

Option B=189000(r+1)^n

r=(18/12)/100=0.015=MPR=monthly % rate

n=(10yr)(12)=120=number of compounding

periods.

Option B=189000(1.015)^120=1128000.
