    Hi all,

    The answer given by the test is C
    i found the working to this question.

    Future value: 587,000
    I/Y: 6%
    N= 3
    Therefore the va;ue of 587,000 in three years is worth 492,857
    The cost they must incurred shall be 492,860-75,000 = 417,863

    My question is will the comptia exam present such a question? This is related somehow to a finance question. Manage to pull out my finance textbook to solve this question
