# Annuity!

posted by on .

When Raisel's son was born, she put \$7,500 in an investment that earns 5.25% compounded quarterly. This investment will mature when her son turns 18 and will go straight into an annuity at 7.25% compounded and paying out monthly at the end of the period. The investment was to help pay for his 4-years of college. Find the size of these monthly payments received by Raisel's son during his college stay.

They are the same question.

at age 18:
the amount of the investment = the present value of the annuity

6500(1.019375)^72 = x(1-0.0725/12^-48)/(0.0450/4)
19,177.84 = x(41.55860953)
x=461.46

is dis correct!!!
