Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1it is a very fundamental question . A dollar today is worth against the next year. Due to inflation and other reasons (risks). So with that equation, decrease the value of revenues of the following years to get the present value of them. \[PV = A \times (1  (1 + r)^{n})/ r\] r = discount rate and n = years
