The inflation rate is 4%.

Calculate the PV of Mr.
Deco’s payment using the equivalent real cash flow and real discount
rate.
(You should get exactly
the same answer as he did.) (Do not round intermediate calculations.
Round your “Real cash
flow” and “Present value” answers to the nearest dollar amount
and
“Real discount rate” answer
to 2 decimal places.)
