Annual Interest Rate = 6%
Quarterly Interest Rate = 1.5%

Present Value = \$900/1.015^4 + \$600/1.015^8 + \$0/1.015^12 + \$1,100/1.015^16
Present Value = \$2,247.24

Present Value = \$500
Semiannual Period = 46 (23 years)
Annual Interest Rate = 9%
Semiannual Interest Rate = 4.5%

Future Value = \$500 * 1.045^46
Future Value = \$3,787.21

Annual Deposit = \$1,300
Annual Interest Rate = 8.6%
Period = 23 years

Accumulated Sum = \$1,300 * FVIFA(8.6%, 23)
Accumulated Sum = \$1,300 * (1.086^23 - 1) / 0.086
Accumulated Sum = \$85,700.05

Annual Deposit = \$1,300
Annual Interest Rate = 8.6%
Period = 46 years

Accumulated Sum = \$1,300 * FVIFA(8.6%, 46)
Accumulated Sum = \$1,300 * (1.086^46 - 1) / 0.086
Accumulated Sum = \$657,266.93
