Hi again fatima! In order to answer this, you would need to use the same formula I provided in the previous question I answered for you (Question ID 566664), found in the link: Calculating the Present and Future Value of Annuities http://www.investopedia.com/articles/03/101503.asp In this case, the present value of this investment can be calculated as: PV = 300 + (-200)/1.15 + (-125)/1.15^2 Notice that the first payment is not discounted, because according to your question, it's done today. The -$200 payment is made one year from now; and the $-125 one is made two years from now. The formula above gives that the present value of this investment is $31.56. I hope this helps! Best wishes, elmarto
