# You are saving for the college education of your two children.

March 14, 2016

Thank-you for helping me with my homework. Can you please help me with a few more problems? I need this by tonight by 5pm. These answers have to have detailed steps in this.

1.) You are saving for the college education of your two children. One child (the oldest) will enter college in 5 years, while the other child will enter college in 7 years. College costs are currently \$10,000 per year and are expected to grow at a rate of 5 percent per year. All college costs are paid at the beginning of the year. You assume that each child will be in college for four years. You currently have \$50,000 in your educational fund. Your plan is to contribute a fixed amount to the fund over each of the next 5 years. Your first contribution will come at the end of this year (one year from today), and your final contribution will be made on the date at which you make the first tuition payment for your oldest child. You expect to invest your contributions into various investments, which are expected to earn 8 percent per year. How much should you contribute each year in order to meet the expected cost of your children’s education? (Round to the nearest dollar)

(#2.) You are planning to buy your first house. The cost of the house is \$200,000, of which you will pay 20% as a down payment and finance the remainder. The mortgage rate on the 30-year loan with monthly payments is 6% compounded monthly. What is the monthly payment amount on the loan and how much of your first month’s payment will go towards paying the principle?

(#3.) Assume Jennifer has a choice between two deposit accounts. Account A has an annual percentage rate of 7.55 percent but with interest compounded monthly. Account B has an annual percentage rate of 7.45 percent with interest compounded daily. Which account provides the highest effective annual return?

(#4.) Kahlil bought 100 shares of Cisco Systems stock for \$24.00 per share on January 1, 2008. He received a dividend of \$5.00 per share at the end of 2008 and sold his stock for \$18.00 per share. What was Kahlil’s realized return?
