  1. Future value = 50000
    period = semi-annual
    number of periods, n = 15*2=30
    Annual interest rate, = 11%
    i = 0.11/2=0.055
    Periodic payment (6 months) = P

    Let r=1+i=1.055

    Future value, 50000
    = P(1+r+r²+r³+...+rn-1)
    = P(rn-1)/(r-1) by factorizing

    therefore, using (r-1)=i,

    P=50000*i/(rn-1)
    =50000*0.055/(1.05530-1)
    =690.27 per period of 6 months.
