No, I don't that's quite what the question asked for. We're asked
"Find the amount that schould be invested now to accumulate following amounts,if te money is compounded as indicated.

You compounded it monthly, we only need to do it every six months so we use
2000= P(1+.09/2)^16 Now solve for P.
The semiannual rate is 4.5% so i=.045 and n =2*8=16.
Also, we want to find a present value given a future value. Check that I read it correctly.
