They would like to make the first contribution to the children's college fund a year from today. They assume the children will begin their college education when they reach the age of 18. They would like each child to attend an in-state public university and the current cost of college is \$23,000 each year per child. Assume that the cost of college is anticipated to increase at an inflation rate of 5.5% per year, while the CPI is expected to remain at 3.5% per year Joseph and Raine already have \$42,000 invested ina college fund. Assume that they can get a return of 8% on their invested funds prior to and during college Help Joseph and Raine determine how much they will need to save each year to reach their goal.
