Hi,

below is the solution using future value of annuity method

Annuity = $2000

Interest rate = 12%

Time = 20 years

For 12% and 20 years, future value interest factor of annuity is 72.0524 (use future value table to locate this values)

Thus final amount is = $2000*72.0524

                                = $144104.8

                                 = $ 144105
