# Section A: Solving Typical FE Problems

 How to use this section: Each problem-type (What to do) is labeled and a solution approach (How to do it) is detailed. A reference is provided to the appropriate section(s) in the text Blank and Tarquin, Engineering Economy, 5th edition. These section references should be used for reviewing the text material.Solved examples of FE-like problems using the solution approach are presented, followed by a reference to related FE review problems included in Section B of this material. Once you understand the solution approach here, you should be able to proceed to the referenced FE review problems. A good strategy is to cover several of the sections here, then go to the FE review problems in Section B to determine how well you can do.What to do: Find P or F from Single AmountsWhat to do: Find P from a Uniform Series (A) and Vice VersaWhat to do: Find F from a Uniform Series (A) and Vice VersaWhat to do: Find P, A, or F from Uniform Gradient Cash FlowsWhat to do: Identify Nominal and Effective Interest RatesWhat to do: Find an Effective Interest Rate from a Nominal Rate and Vice VersaWhat to do: Find P or F for Single Payments and Nominal Interest RatesWhat to do: Calculations Involving Uniform Series and Nominal Interest RatesWhat to do: Find P, A, or F from Non-conventional Uniform Series Cash FlowsWhat to do: Compare Alternatives by PW or AW AnalysisWhat to do: Find the Capitalized Cost of Infinite Cash Flow SequenceWhat to do: Find the Capitalized Cost of Finite Cash FlowsWhat to do: Find the Benefit/Cost RatioWhat to do: Find the Present Worth of a BondWhat to do: Find the Present Worth When Inflation is ConsideredWhat to do: Determine Asset Depreciation by SL or MACRS MethodsWhat to do: Find Asset Book Value by SL or MACRSWhat to do: Find the Breakeven Point
