Need help on some homework (math/finance related)
    #11200157 - 10/07/09 02:01 PM (8 years, 15 days ago)

I'm having trouble figuring out what this guy wants me to do here...maybe some of you cats can help me out.

The average annual timber yield for a 2500 acre management area was reduced from $30 per acre to $20 per acre by a prescription to enhance wildlife and domestic forage production.  If the increase in forage is valued at $1.50 per acre per year (say from grazing leases), what is the present value of the increased wildlife benefits for the whole management area needed to equal the net reduction in commercial values?  Assume a planning horizon of 50 years and an alternate rate of return of 7 percent.

The end answer is 293,265.86

I don't really know what the fuck I'm supposed to do to get to that, though. :crankey:

May I recommend a fabulous website to you?

www.interactmath.com

they even have it so you enter the edition and name of your text book, then pick a chapter, then pick an exercise!

then there are simulations that guide and instruct you through the problem step by step :wink:

this website must have saved me 1,000s of dollars in tutoring and saved my ass countless times.

My statistical assumption is that chemical tapering should begin when the rate of visiting ODD exceeds the rate of visiting Pub, or any other Shroomery forum.

Ah, thanks for the recommendation, but I don't think it'll help me here.  The teacher doesn't really follow a text book.  Quite infuriating.

Never mind - got it.

$30 = commercial stream a

$20 = commercial stream b

$1.5 = forage stream c

"X" = wildlife stream d

Rate is 7

find the diff between PV of 30 for 50 yrs vs the PV of 21.5 for 30 yrs at (7%)

then that is X and your answer
