If your first deposit will be made one month from now, how large will your retirement account be in 29 years?

#### Homework Answers

Answer #1
 Future value of investment = Monthly deposit * Future value of annuity of 1 = \$           120.00 * 3831.638 = \$ 4,59,796.54 Working: Future value of annuity of 1 = (((1+i)^n)-1)/i Where, = 3831.637843 i = 13%/12 = 0.010833 n = 29*12 = 348
Answer #2

SOLUTION :

Monthly compounding.

Monthly deposit, A = 120 (\$)

Monthly interest rate, r = 13/12 % = 13/1200 in fractions.

=> 1 + r = 1213/1200

Periods, n = 29 * 12 = 348 months

So,

FV after 29 years (348 months)

= A((1 + r)^n - 1) / r

= 120 * ((1213/1200)^348 - 1) / (13/1200)

= 459796.54 (\$)  : 5th OPTION (ANSWER).
