    This is a question on Present Value of Annuity Factor. So the Present Value comes at 15000 x 7.843 = $ 117645.

    thanks to KallolSarkar698 \[pv = A \times( (1 - (1 \div (1+ r ) ^n)) / r)\] pv = present value of investment A= annual payment r = annual return rate n = years pv = 15000 x ((1 - (1 / 17.001) / 0.12) pv = 15000 x 7.843 = 117,647 $
