    A company contributes $150 per month into a retirement fund paying a nominal interest rate of 4.40% APR compounded monthly and employees are permitted to invest up to $ 2,900 per year into another retirement fund which pays a nominal interest rate of 4.40% APR compounded annually. How large can the combined retirement fund be worth in 25 years?

    i guess this is the formula you wrote A=R*( (1+i)^n - 1 ) / (i) but i am not sure what all the variable represent

    ok A stands for Annuity, R is the payment, i is the APR/frequency of pay, and n is the frequency of pay

    so for example "i" would be .044/12

    then \[\frac{150(1+\frac{.044}{12})^{12-1}}{\frac{.044}{12}}\] but that can't be right, because there is no time mentioned in the formula is perhaps \(n\) the number of payments?

    that would make more sense it can't really be the frequency of the payments minus one there has to be something mentioning the number of payments made

    makes sense if you are summing a geometric sequence i think

    its not n-1. its raised to n and then you subtract everything in the parenthesis by 1.
