account? [Show answer correct to the nearer dollar.]
ANS. This is an annuity due.
FV(30) = R * [{1.08)**30 – 1} / 0.08] * (1.08)
= 2,000 * 113.2832111 * 1.08.

= $244,692.

increased by 4% each year, indefinitely. What will the dividend be in eight years (correct to the nearer cent)?
ANS. DIV (30) = DIV (0) * (1.04)**8

= $0.68.
8. You would like to retire in 50 years, as a millionaire. If you have $20 000 today what rate of return do you
need to earn to achieve your goal? [Show answer as a percentage, correct to 2 decimal places].
ANS. FV(50) = P(0) * [1 + r) **t
$1,000,000 = $20,000 * (1 + r) **t.
(1 + r )**t = 1,000,000 / 20,000 = 50.
(1 + r)**50 = 50.
{1 + r ) = 50 **0.02 = 1,08138.= 8.14%. p.a.
