```					Derek Lee Inc. Loans money to John Kruk Corporation in the amount of \$600,000. Lee
accepts 8% note due in 7 years with interest payable semiannually. After 2 years (and
receipt of interest for 2 years). Lee needs money and therefore sells the note to Chicago
National Bank, While demands interest on the note of 10% compounded semiannually.
What is the amount lee will receive on the sale of the note?

The semiannual interest received on the loan at 8% = \$600,000 × 4% = \$24,000

The amount Lee would receive on the sale of the note is the sum of the PV of interest
payments and the PV of the \$600,000 principal. Both would be discounted at an
interest rate of 5% for 10 periods (Since interest is compounded semi annually, then
interest = 10% ÷ 2 = 5%. Number of periods = 5 (years) × 2 = 10 periods)
