The first step is to find the size of the college expense for 4 years. The size of the expense is found using present value of annuity equation.
The bank account must have $ 145,195.81 in 11 years to fund the college expense. The deposit X is found using future value of growing annuity equation.
In the above equation, the effective interest rate equals the growth rate. hence the formula reduces to
FV = X * n * ( 1 + r) n-1
$ 145,195.81 = X * 11 * ( 1 + 0.04)11-1
The value of the deposit X = $ 8917.19 $ 8917.2
