You have just made a $10,000 deposit to your savings account.
Your rich aunt will
make an additional deposit of $8,000 to your account one year from now.
Assuming you
earn an annual nominal interest rate of 4%, compounded monthly, and make no
additional contributions, what will your account be worth 4 years from today?
The $10,000 deposit earns interest for 48 months; the $8,000 deposit earns interest for
36 months.
The interest rate per month is 0.04/12 = 0.003333.
