Present Value Compound Interest Problem: Suppose that money is invested in a savings account at 6% annual interest, compounded monthly. Because the interest rate is 0.5% per month, the amounts in the account each month form a geometric sequence with common ratio 1.005. a. Find the amount you would have to invest now to have $10,000 at the end of ten years. This amount is called the present value of $10,000. b. If you invest x dollars a month into this account, the total at the end of each month is a partial sum of a geometric series with x as the first term and common ratio 1.005. How much would you have to invest each month in order to have $10,000 at the end of ten years?
