At first glance, there doesn't seem to be enough information given. I would have to go with B.).

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
