# Project #77625 - ordinary annuity and compounded quarterly

I need to understand the below, please write it out step by step. Thank you...

For purposes of compensation, an actuary working for a lawyer estimates the annual earnings of a September 11 victim that died at the Twin Towers at age 32.

The victim was making \$95,000 a year and a stream of payments for that amount would have likely accrued to him annually until retirement at age 65.

The actuary knows that this is an ordinary annuity problem. He assumes, as is usual, that the victim's salary would grow in tandem with inflation, which for years has hovered at around at 3% annually.

1. What is the future value of this annuity, the minimum basis for a possible settlement with the relatives of the victim if a fair settlement were indeed on the table?

(Please note that, in court, the argument over compensation will likely be about the annuity's present value, as close relatives have immediate needs for cash; we will cover the concept of an annuity's present value next week and then return to this problem.)

1. Belle and the Beast want to retire in 10 years and can save \$2,000 every three months. They plan to deposit the money at the beginning of each quarter into an account paying 4% compounded quarterly. How much will they have in 10 years?
