Question

A 42-year-old man puts $1500 in a retirement account at the end of each quarter until he reaches the age of 61, then makes no further deposits. If the account pays 4% interest compounded quarterly, how much will be in the account when the man retires at age 66? There will be how much $ in the account. Round to the nearest cent

Answer #1

Here, the deposits will be same every quarter, so it is an annuity. We need to find the future value of annuity here. We will use the future value of annuity formula as per below:

**FVA = P * ((1 + r)n - 1 / r)**

where, FVA is future value of annuity, P is the periodical amount = $1500, r is the rate of interest = 4% compounded quarterly, so quarterly rate = 4% / 4 = 1% and n is the time period = 19 years or 19 * 4 = 76 quarters

Now, putting these values in the above formula, we get,

FVA = $1500 * ((1 + 1%)76 - 1 / 1%)

FVA = $1500 * ((1 + 0.01)76 - 1 / 0.01)

FVA = $1500 * ((1.01)76 - 1 / 0.01)

FVA = $1500 * ((2.13021975304 - 1 / 0.01)

FVA = $1500 * (1.13021975304 / 0.01)

FVA = $1500 * 113.021975304

FVA = $169532.96

So, there will be $169532.96 in the account.

Starting at age 50, a woman puts $1300 at the end of each
quarter into a retirement account that pays 7% interest compounded
quarterly. When she reaches age 60, she withdraws the entire
amount and places it in a mutual fund account that pays 9%
compounded monthly. From then on she deposits $200 in the same
mutual fund at the end of each month. How much is in the account
when she reaches age 65?
