## A school district is borrowing $40,000,000 over 17 years to fund a building expansion project. The school district is looking at severe budget cuts where they are considering laying off a number of personnel. The choices they are considering are to borrow at a one year interest rate of 1.75% then, one year from now, must borrow at a fixed rate for the remaining 16 years OR they can borrow for the full 17 years at a fixed rate of 4.0%.
