The city of St. John’s is installing a new swimming pool in the east end recreation centre.  One design being considered is a reinforced concrete pool that will cost $5,100,000 to install.  Thereafter, the inner surface of the pool will need to be refinished and painted every 5 years at a cost of $460,000 per refinishing.  Assuming that the pool will have essentially an infinite life, what is the present worth of the costs associated with the pool design?  The city uses a MARR of 5%.  If the installation costs, refinishing costs, and MARR are subject to 5% or 10% increases or decreases, how is the present worth affected? (NOTE:  Text answers are case sensitive and every field in this question is worth equal value)

All calculations are performed using 4 significant figures.
