1. Your uncle has $375,000 and wants to retire. He expects to live for another 25 years and

to earn 7.5% compounded annually on his invested funds. How much could he withdraw at

the end of each of the next 25 years?

Solution

The present value (PV) = 375,000

The annual Interest rate (r) = 0.075

The Retirement Period. NPER = 25

The Future Value (FV) = 0

Annual withdrawal (PMT) is calculated as follows

Let’s assume the value is X

X (1−(1+r) −T)

= 375, 000

r

X (1−(1+7.5%) −25)

= 375,000

7.5%

11.146945X = 375, 000

Divide both sides by 11.146945 to get X

X =33,641.50 answers

2. Your uncle has $631,000 and wants to retire. He expects to live for another 30 years, and

he also expects to earn 5.8% compounded annually on his invested funds. How much could

he withdraw at the beginning of each of the next 30 years?

Solution

Let’s assume the amount he will withdraw will be y

y (1−(1+r) −T)

= 631,000

r

y (1−...
