  2. Percentage Holding Period Return = [($1,000 - $975 + $60)/$975] x 100% = 8.717% (8.72% rounded).

  3. Six months ago, you purchased a tract of land in an area where a new
    industrial park was rumored to be planned. This land cost you $110,000, and
    the seller offered you an interest-free loan for 70 percent of the land cost.
    Today, the industrial park project was formally announced, and an attorney
    for the developer has just offered you $190,000 for your land. If you accept
    this offer, what will be your holding period return on this investment?
