If Naomi invests in a stock portfolio, her returns for 10 or more years will average 10%-12%. Naomi realizes that the stock market has higher returns because it is a more risky investment than a savings account or a CD.

How much will she need to invest annually to accumulate a million dollars in the stock market?
