    This is all the information i got... :/ Would it be like every year the economy would increase its rate up 3.4%?

    i think, im not sure, it is equivalent to an interest rate

    im not taking your course, so i dont know what your material provides you. If we knew for sure that we can just use the egr as an equivalent to an interest rate ... the solution is simple enough.

    Could we solve it like with the Present Value or Future Value formula? I have those.

    yes, as long as we can assume EGR is an equivalent to interest rate in this problem.

    an annuity is simply a loan, that is being paid ... annuity due start off the balance with the amount of a payment, where as an ordinary annuity start off the balance as 0 we have an annutiy due F = Pk^t + P(k^t-1)/(k-1), such that k = 1+ r F = Nk^t, is the compounding formula the present value (the NOW value) is N Nk^t = Pk^t + P(k^t-1)/(k-1) N = P + P(k^t-1)/(k^t(k-1))

    on this one im getting 77812 assuming EGR is an interest rate equivalent so something close to that is what I would "GUESS" as a solution.

    Daniel is 31 years old and planning to retire at age 63. what is our time span? He will invest an average of $215 each month with an average annual return of 2.9% annuity due is just a payment BEFORE interest is added in, and it is usually stated as 'deposited at the beginning of the month' this has no indication of beginning of month, so ordinary should be proper.

    she has to withdraw it at some time. so the effective value ... let me get a definition on this (its either balance, or useable value)

    how do you define effective value? If I have $10, but can only access $8, then do I effectively have $8 instead of $10?

    Well if you have $10 but can only get $8, then i would think youd still have $10, you just cant use all of it.

    Ohhh. That makes sense. I did find this online calculator for the IRA, but it didnt give me the right answer. I thought maybe you'd wanna check it out. http://www.timevalue.com/products/tcalc-financial-calculators/traditional-ira-calculator.aspx?CONTRIBUTION=1625&YEARSTILLRETIREMENT=43&ROI=4.9&TAXBRACKETRETIRE=15&COMPUTE=COMPUTE&CALCULATORID=RC02&HIDEFORMTAG=TRUE&TEMPLATE_ID=www.timevalue.com_1&PostBack=true

    ok, so we want the value after we withdraw it ... we get to keep 100-15 = 85% of it

    1625(k^(43)-1)/(k-1), k=1+.049/12 the value i the account is therefore 226257, what is 85% of that?

    that divide by 12 is not accurate, when we have say monthly deposits, we want to adjust the compounding interest rate over 12 months in a year since we are working with a yearly deposit ... r/1 = r other than that yeah k = 1+.053

    Roth is a better investment, I have heard that it is a better investment in that you dont get taxed twice on your money. A tradiation IRA, you work, get a paycheck, and they take out taxes ... you use the taxed money to build an IRA with, and then when you remove the taxed money, you get taxed again. Roth IRA, I believe, does not tax you the second time.

    Your material should define the Roth IRA, along those terms I beleive. so we are able to withdraw the total amount of the account with no penalty of taxation.

    not according to my understanding of it. 85% is the result of a tax penalty without the tax penalty, the ROTH gives you 100% im just not sure if there is a taxed portion of it, like say on the interest ...

    i think, you only get taxed on the interest earned (since that is an extra source of income)

    ok, but for my own sake lets assume interest is taxable ... at 15% 3175*34 = 107950 is the total payments we have put in, it is equivalent to a loan amount total cost = loan + interest, and total cost has been determined alredy (3175(k^(34)-1)/(k-1)), k=1+.053 = 286857 286857 - 107950 = interest 178907 is what we get taxed on, and we get to keep 85% of it soo 107950 + 178907(.85) = net worth Payments interest
