A major lottery advertises that it pays the winner \$10 million. However this prize money is paid at the rate of \$500,000 each year (with the first payment being immediate) for a total of 20 payments. What is the present value of this prize at 10% interest compounded annually?

Report your answer in \$millions, rounded to two decimal places. So, for example, if you compute the answer to be 5.7124 million dollars then you should submit an answer of 5.71.
