### Question 4: AS1201 Financial & Investment Mathematics Assignment

A car leasing company purchases cars from a manufacturer and immediately rents them out to clients on a four-year contract.

The current purchase price of each car is £20,000 and the company expects that the sale price of each car at the end of the contract will be £8,000. The rental income is payable continuously throughout the four-year period and increases by £1,000 at the end of each year.
