#### Homework Answers

Answer #1

Annual Salary in Year 1= \$80,000

Annual Saving in Year 1 = 0.10(80000) = \$8,000

Salary Growth Rate = Saving Growth Rate = 5%

Interest Rate on Mutual Fund = 9% annually

Time Period = 30 years

a.

Calculating Future Value,

Future Value of Growing Annuity = P[((1 + r)n - (1 + g)n)/(r - g)]

Future Value = 8000[((1.09)30 - (1.05)30)/(0.09 - 0.05)]

Future Value = \$1,789,147.22

b.

Time Period after retirement = 25 years

Interest Rate = 8% annually

Present Value of Annuity = \$1,789,147.22

Calculating Annuity Payment,

Annuity Payment = r(PV)/1 - (1 + r)-n

Annuity Payment = 0.08(1,789,147.22)/1 - (1.08)-25

Annuity Payment = \$167,605.13

So,

Annually one can spend \$167,605.13
