Mr. Smith wants to save for his son’s college education.
If he deposits \$300 each month at 12% compounded
monthly, how much (to the nearest penny) will he have in the
account after 8 years?

HOW DO I SOLVE THIS ??

• MATH FINANCE -

You should know the "amount of an annuity" formula

amount = payment[ (1+i)^n - 1]/i
where i is the monthly rate, n is the number of payments
payment = 300
i = .12/12 = .01
n = 8(12) = 96

you do the button-pushing, let me know what you got.
