I solved for both which i got

aFV= $10483.34

bFV= $16322.67

to get this answer i used this formula: FV=PMT((1+i)^n))-1/i

i just don't know what do i do now?

At the end of the first 2 years, the value of the payments up to that point will be

1200 ( 1.025^8 - 1)/.025 = 10483.339 (you had that)

let's "move" that up to the end of 5 years at the new rate

value = 10483.339(1.0225^12) = 13691.765

Amount of the last 3 years' payments at year 5

= 1200( 1.0225^12 - 1)/.0225 = 16322.666

so total amount = 16322.666 + 13691.765 = $30 014.43
