**a)** How much will James have to pay in 2 years time to fully repay his debt if he pays $1,000 to-day & $4,000 1 year from now?

**b)** Calculate James' payments if he wants to fully repay his debt with two equal payments - the first 9 months from now & the second 18 months from now.

Possible formula: Fv=PMT[ (1+i)^n -1 / i ]

Someone please help me with this question...

Thanks in advance
