Foundation Tier Task – Aunt Lucy

Plan

My plan is to calculate all four schemes in three five-year periods. Scheme A, B, C and D each last for 15 years. I will set the results using tables of data. Then I shall produce bar graphs to compare my results and evaluate what I have done.

The schemes are as follows: -

Scheme A

£100 to pay now, £90 to pay in a year’s time, £80 to pay in two year’s time, ect

Scheme B

£10 to pay now, £20 to pay in a year’s time, £30 to pay in two years time, ect

Scheme C

£10 to pay now, 1.5 of £10 to pay in a year’s time, 1.

Conclusion

My Scheme results in a lot of money being made from only a small annual instalment of £30. Each year it doubles, so after that you would pay £60 ect. If I was to increase the price to £50 ect, I predict that Bob would make over a million pounds.
