How much is the present value of this lottery?

  • Finance -

    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!
