The question is You are earning an average of 46500 and will retire in 10 years. If you put 20% of your gross average income in an ordinary annuity compounded at 7% annually, what will be the value of the annuity when you retire?

You put in P = 9,300 per year for n = 10 years at interest rate r = .07

You can do this as a future value of annuity or amount of a sinking fund. N is accumulated after n years.

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

N = 9300 * [ (1.07)^10 - 1 ] / .07

N = 128,493
