**MathMate**, Wednesday, July 13, 2011 at 11:41amFor Sam:

Use

F=R((1+i)^n-1)/i

F=future value

R=payment per period, $3500

i=interest, 0.065/4=0.01625

n=number of periods, 5*4=20

F=$81936 approx.

For Ren

Use the same formula for Sam, except

F=26255, i=0.013, n=2*3=6,

Find R. I get approx. $4236.
