**Reiny**, Tuesday, October 11, 2011 at 10:28amThis question and the question in your previous post suggest that you are studying compound interest.

Both are very routine questions that you should be able to answer quite readily.

Payment=200

i = .05/12 = .004166667

n = 30(12) = 360

a)

amount = 200(1.004166667^360 - 1)/.004166667 = 166451.75

b) and c) --- very easy

d)

166451.75 = PV(1.004166667)^360 , where PV is present value . or your "lump sum"

= 37256.33
