- For all problems, you are required to illustrate how you got to your final answers. If you do not show your work, you will not receive credit.
- For problems 2 and 3, you are required to show the analysis on a timeline as was done within the chapter. An example of such a timeline is on page 272 of the text. (Although the textbook also demonstrates the financial calculator solution and the spreadsheet solution, these are not considered acceptable for this homework assignment.)
- Your final answers to the problems must be highlighted in yellow.
- Your submitted work must be neat and easily readable. Submissions that are difficult to read will receive a grade of zero.
- It is very important that you use commas to separate thousands within numbers. Comma placement is required in all steps of solving the problems as well as within the final answers.
For example: 20,000 and $4,000,000 are correct
20000 and $4000000 are incorrect and will receive a grade of zero
