return is not the principal amount. It is the profit on the principal amount at the rate of return. You are wrong, Nancy

Well, first I found a factor that would convert the cash flow pattern from an annuity to present value. The factor I came up with is [((1+0.08)^(8))-1]/[0.08(1+0.08)^(8)], which equals 5.747. Then I multiplied that factor by my intitial annuity. So, 5.747(3500)=$20,113.23
