Example2 I would like to create a trust fund for my daughter that she can have in 18 years for college. I have $10,000 to invest. Which account would have a greater balance, one earning an APR of 6% compounded semiannually or one that earns an APR of 5.5% compounded daily?
Example 3 I would like to retire with a balance of $100,000 in an annuity. Find the amount of money to invest initially (principal) if I want to retire in 30 years and I can invest at an APR of 7% compounded weekly.
7% compounded weekly A = 100,000 P = ??? n = 52 t = 30 r =.07
