Textbook Problem

Solve the following exercises by using tables.

Paul and Donna Kelsch are planning a Mediterranean cruise in 4 years and will need $7,500 for the trip. They decide to set up a “sinking fund" savings account for the vacation. They intend to make regular payments at the end of each 3-month period into the account that pays 6% interest compounded quarterly. What periodic sinking fund payment will allow them to achieve their vacation goal?

To determine

To calculate: The amount of sinking fund payment required to achieve the vacation goals of Paul and Donna in 4 years by setting up a sinking fund account. They will need $7,500 for the trip. They deposit at the end of every 3 month interval at 6% interest compounded quarterly.

Explanation

Given Information:

Paul and Donna in 4 years by setting up a sinking fund account. They will need $7,500 for the trip. They deposit at the end of every 3 month interval at 6% interest compounded quarterly.

Formula used:

The sinking fund payment is calculated as follows:

Sinking fund payment=Future value of sinking fundFuture value table factor

Where, FV is the future value, i is the interest rate per period, n is the number of periods.

Calculation:

Consider that Paul and Donna’s payment frequency is 3 months, time duration is 4 years, nominal rate of return is 6% and interest is compounded quarterly and amount required in future is $7,500.

The rate period is 1.5% or 0.015(6%÷4 period per year)
