• 21. Retirement Plan

You start your working career when you are 22 years old. Each month, you deposit \$200 into a retirement plan that earns 8%, compounded monthly. You continue making deposits into the plan until you are 67 years old.

Find the balance in the account.

• Worked-Out Solution

Use the formula for the balance in an increasing annuity.

The reason that the balance is so great is that 8% is a huge annual percentage rate to earn on an investment. Historically, however, this type of rate has been possible with stock investments. Stock investments, of course, are not guaranteed.
