Question:

A rich uncle has promised to pay you $3,160 a year for the next 25 years. If you invest this money at 4.9%, how much will you have at the end of 25 years?

Annuity Future Value:

A stream of equal annual (or other periodic) cash flows is an annuity. The future value of an annuity is the amount you would have in a bank account if you deposit all annuity payments in the account at the corresponding interest rate.

Answer and Explanation: 1

Let

  • FVA = future value of annuity
  • D = periodic deposit = $3,160
  • r = interest rate = 4.9%
  • n = number of years = 25

With the help of the annuity future value formula, we will calculate the account balance in 25 years:

{eq}FVA=D*\frac{(1+r)^{n}-1}{r}\\ FVA=3,160*\frac{(1+0.049)^{25}-1}{0.049}\\ FVA=\$148,754.88\\ {/eq}

You will have $148,754.88 at the end of 25 years
