When Cody's son was born, he put $4,500 in an investment that earns 7% compounded semi-annually. This investment will mature when his son turns 18 and will go straight into an annuity at 4.75% compounded and paying out quarterly at the end of the period. The investment was to help pay for his 4-years of college. Find the size of these quarterly payments received by Cody's son during his college stay.

at age 18:

the amount of the investment = the present value of the annuity

4500(1.035)^36 = x(1 - 1.011875^-16)/.011875

15526.20 = x(14.4938741)

x = 15526.20/14.4938741 = 1071.22
