Note: "...pays $5,000 at the**beginning**of each month..."

Should that ring a bell?

2.

To find the present value of the annuity due, we can consider it as the sum of the first payment (immediate) and an ordinary annuity with one payment less (the last one).

Thus:

n=20*12-1=239

R=5000

i=7.7%/12

P=R + R(1-(1+0.077/12)^(-239))/(0.077/12)

=5000+5000(1-0.21682)/0.006416667

=5000+5000*122.0539

=5000+610269.5

=$615,269.50
