Lecture 3 Review Problem Let’s rewind a few years back. You are 18, and just graduated from high school. You are facing two alternatives: go straight to work, or go to college. Interest rate is 5 . 8269% continuously compounded. If you go straight to work, you will be able to put away \$5 , 000 in a year into your savings account and grow this deposit by 2% every year thereafter. Your last deposit will be in 47 years, when you turn 65. If you decide to go to the university, you will have to pay tuition for four years while you are studying. You would go to an expensive school and pay \$50 , 000 a year for tuition with the first payment in one year. After you graduate in four years, you’ll start working at a higher paying job that will allow you to save \$15 , 000 in five years (when you are 23 years old), and this amount will grow by 3% thereafter. Your last deposit will be in 47 years, when you turn 65. 1. Is going to the university worth it?

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
