Accepted Solution

A:
Answer: $59313.58Step-by-step explanation:Formula to find the accumulated amount of the annuity is given by :-[tex]FV=A(\frac{(1+\frac{r}{m})^{mt})-1}{\frac{r}{m}})[/tex], where A is the annuity payment deposit, r is annual interest rate , t is time in years and m is number of periods.Given : m= $2000 ; m= 1 Β  [∡ its annual] ; Β  t= 10 years ; Β  r= 0.06Now substitute all these value in the formula , we get[tex]FV=(4500)(\frac{(1+\frac{0.06}{1})^{1\times10})-1}{\frac{0.06}{1}})[/tex]β‡’ [tex]FV=(4500)(\frac{(1.06)^{10})-1}{0.06})[/tex]β‡’ [tex]FV=(4500)(\frac{0.79084769654}{0.06})[/tex]β‡’ [tex]FV=(4500)(13.1807949423)[/tex]β‡’ [tex]FV=59313.5772407\approx59313.58 \ \ \text{ [Rounded to the nearest cent]}[/tex]Hence, the accumulated amount of the annuity= $59313.58
