A rookie quarterback is negotiating his first NFL contract. His opportunity cost is 10 percent. He has been offered three possible 4-year contracts. Payments are guaranteed, and they would be made at the end of each year. Terms of each contract are listed below: As his advisor, which would you recommend that he accept?

\begin{array}{|l|l|}\hline&1&2&3&4\\\hline\text{Contract 1}&$3,000,000&$3,000,000&$3,000,000&$3,000,000\\\hline\text{Contarct 2}&$2,000,000&$3,000,000&$4,000,000&$5,000,000\\\hline\text{Contarct 3}&$7,000,000&$1,000,000&$1,000,000&$1,000,000\\\hline\end{array}

To solve this problem, you present value each of the futurecashflows to today.

The payment made after 1 year is worth

\(\frac{X}{(1+10\%)^1} \)today.

The payment made after 2 year is worth \(\frac{X}{(1+10\%)^2}\) today. etc.

So, the value of contract 1 is:
\(=\frac{$3MM}{(1.1)}+\frac{$3MM}{(1.1)^2}+\frac{$3MM}{(1.1)^3}+\frac{$3MM}{(1.1)^4}=$9,509,596.34 \) Contract 2 = $10,717,847.14 

Contract 3 = $8,624,410.90.

So Contract 2 is the most valuable.

A man lost in a maze makes three consecutive displacements so that at the end of his travel he is right back where he started. The first displacement is 4.00 m westward, and the second is 10.0 m northward. Use the graphical method to find the magnitude and direction of the third displacement.

A quarterback claims that he can throw the football ahorizontal distance of 183 m (200 yd). Furthermore, he claims thathe can do this by launching the ball at the relatively low angle of 30.0 degree above the horizontal. To evaluate this claim, determinethe speed with which this quarterback must throw the ball. Assumethat the ball is launched and caught at the same vertical level andthat air resistance can be ignored. For comparison, a baseballpitcher who can accurately throw a fastball at 45 m/s (100 mph)would be considered exceptional.
