P = N * [1 - (1+r)^-n]/r

P = 15,000 * [1 - (1.11)^-10]/.11

P = 88,338

equivalently

P = N * [(1+r)^n -1]/[r*(1+r)^n]

P = 15,000 [ (1.11)^10 -1 ] / [.11*(1.11)^10]

P = 15,000 [ 1.84 /.312] = 88,338

Here is a link to the present value of a future annuity

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Annuity_%28finance_theory%29

Look at

P \,=\,R\left[\frac{1-\frac{1}{\left(1+i\right)^n}}{i}\right] = R\cdot a_{\overline{n}|i}

I figured that sicking fund was a typo, but perhaps it was in GE stock.
