The answer depends somewhat upon whether interest is compounded monthly, quarterly or annually, etc. It is easier to do if the interest is compounded monthly, the same frequency that investments are made.

A total of 25 x 12 = 300 payments of $50 are made into the account. Using this website:

I get a total after 25 years of $42,516

Make that 42,516.84. There is a formula that could be used, but I don't know it. reiny probably knows the formula.
