  1. No. How can the value of the annuity be less than the monthly payment?

  2. How would I solve the problem the right way then?

    I don't understand how to solve it.

  4. No.

    19 * 12 * 250 = $57,000

    That's the amount he's invested. Now multiply that by 1.075 (interest rate) to find the amount of the annuity.

  5. So, would the answer be 4275?
