Amount to deposit each year is calculated using PMT function in Excel :

rate = 7% (interest rate)

nper = 5 (number of yearly deposits)

pv = 0 (beginning amount in account is zero)

fv = 20000 (required amount in account at end of 5 years)

PMT is calculated to be \$3,477.81

Amount to deposit each year is calculated using PMT function in Excel :

rate = 7% (interest rate)

nper = 5 (number of yearly deposits)

pv = 0 (beginning amount in account is zero)

fv = 20000 (required amount in account at end of 5 years)

type = 1 (each deposit is made at the beginning of the year)

PMT is calculated to be \$3,250.29

Difference = \$3,477.81 - \$3,250.29 = \$227.52

Value today is calculated using PV function in Excel :

rate = 10% (interest rate)

nper = 13 (number of yearly payments)

pmt = 5000 (yearly payment)
