 You decide to begin saving towards the purchase of a new car in 5 years. If you put \$1,000 at the end of each of the next 5 years in a savings account paying 6 percent compounded annually, how much will you accumulate after 5 years? What would be the ending amount if the payments were made at the beginning of each year?

Present Value = \$ 1,000 * 1/(1.06) ^ 1 + \$ 1,000 * 1/(1.06) ^ 2 +\$ 1,000 * 1/(1.06) ^ 3 +\$ 1,000 * 1/(1.06) ^ 4+\$ 1,000 * 1/(1.06) ^ 5

= \$ 4,212.36

Future Value = Present Value * ( 1+ Rate of interest ) ^ Time

=\$ 4,212.36 * ( 1+6/100) ^ 5

= \$ 5,637.087894

Hence the correct answer is \$ 5,637.09

---------

Present Value of Annuity Due =Present Value * ( 1+ Rate of Interest )

= \$ 4,212.36 * ( 1+6/100)

= \$ 4,465.1016

Future Value = Present Value of Annuity Due * ( 1+ Rate of interest ) ^ Time

=\$ 4,465.1016* ( 1+6/100) ^ 5

= \$ 5,975.313168

Hence the correct answer is \$ 5,975.31
