cannot count on a company pension or Social Security benefits to
provide a comfortable retirement. It is recommended that they start
to save regularly and early. Michael, a baby boomer, has decided to
deposit $3000 every year in an account that pays 12% compounded
semiannually for 15 years.
a) How much money will be in the account at the end of the 15
b) Suppose Michael has determined he needs to accumulate
$250,000 from this annuity. What rate would achieve this
c) If he cannot get the higher rate, what amount would his
payments need to be in order to achieve the goal?
