(b) 12.000 euros each year with a initial payment today. (c) 22.000 euros today and then 7.000 euros each year (with initial payment next year), during 12 years.

Is the purchase price \$67,000?
In option b), how many years? 9 years?
"Convenient" means "cheapest"?

b) is probably for 12,000 now and then 12,000 annually for 7 years

a: 67,000
b: 12,000 + 55,644.42 = 67,644.42 (PV of 7 annual payments of 12,000 @ 11.5% = 55,644.42)
c: 22,000 + 44,384.08 = 66,384.08 (PV of 12 annual payments of 7,000 @ 11.5% = 44,384.0
