Suppose that an insurance agent offers you a policy that will provide you with a yearly income of $50,000 in 30 years.  What is the comparable salary today, assuming an inflation rate of 3% compounded annually? (round answer to nearest cent.)

FV = $50000
PV= ?
Rate(r) = 3
time(t) = 30

Using the formula,
FV= PV(1+r/100)^t

or, 50000= PV(1+3/100)^30
or, PV= 50000/(1+3/100)^30 = $20599.34 (answer)


Please best my answer if helpful. Thanks :)
