He is to pay for the car in 13 equal monthly payments, beginning with the first pay- ment immediately (the first payment is the down payment). Nominal interest on the loan is 12%, com- 4-38 monthly. After six payments he decides to sell the car. A buyer agrees to pay off the loan in full and to pay the engineering student $2000.

He estimates that the cost of tuition, books, room and board, transportation, and other incidentals will be $21,000 this year. He expects these costs to rise about $1500 each year while he is in college. If it will take him 5 years to earn his BS, what is the present cost of his degree at an interest rate of 4%? If he earns an extra $15,000 annually for 40 years, what is the present worth of his degree? Contributed by Paul R.
