Homework Help: math

Posted by Marisol on Thursday, April 10, 2008 at 8:00pm.

I keep getting an answer with an exponent and i am not sure what i have done wrong here. Any help is appreciated.

To save for his retirement, Jeff puts $800 per month into his savings account every month for 30 years. The savings account pays 9% interest compounded monthly. How much money will he have in his savings account when he retires at the end of those 30 years?

FV=?
i=0.045
n=360
R=800

FV=R[(1+i)^n-1]/i
FV=800[(1+0.045)^360-1]/0.045
FV=800[7618413.852-1]
FV=800(7618412.852)/0.045
FV=1.354384507^11
