A state's lottery winner is promised $200,000 a year for 3 years(starting at the end of the first year). Interes rate is annually 7 percent on its fund.

Year 1 = 200,000 plus .07% = 14,000

Year 2 = 400,000 plus .07% = 28,000

Year 3 = 600,000 plus .07% = 42,000

When you say "the present value of this lottery" do you mean at the end of the 3rd year? If you mean NOW and he hasn't collected any money = 0!
