Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0A 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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i guess this is the formula you wrote A=R*( (1+i)^n  1 ) / (i) but i am not sure what all the variable represent

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok A stands for Annuity, R is the payment, i is the APR/frequency of pay, and n is the frequency of pay

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so for example "i" would be .044/12

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1then \[\frac{150(1+\frac{.044}{12})^{121}}{\frac{.044}{12}}\] but that can't be right, because there is no time mentioned in the formula is perhaps \(n\) the number of payments?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1that 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\frac{150(1+\frac{.044}{12})^{12\times 251}}{\frac{.044}{12}}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you wrote \(n1\) i assumed that was in the exponent

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1makes sense if you are summing a geometric sequence i think

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0its not n1. its raised to n and then you subtract everything in the parenthesis by 1.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1since it is yearly, \(i=1\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1not if it is yearly, no that is for monthly
