Now we need to calculate the annuity payments that have a PV equal to 29946.46
We are given the following information:
|Annual payment||PMT||To be calculated|
|rate of interest||r||6.00%|
|number of years||n||10|
|Present value||PV||$ 29,946.46|
We need to solve the following equation to arrive at the
So annual withdrawal can be of $4068.76 for the account to hold 0 balance at the end
