  1. The present value P of the note, assuming it is risk free, two months before it is due, is given by
    8000 = P (1 + 0.12/6) = 1.02 P
    Therefore P = $7843.

    I assumed simple interest without compouhding, to keep it simple.

    Discounting the note 10% (presumably to account for risk and inconvenience) makes it worth 90% of that, or $7059.
