Section 5.2
Annuities
A sequence of equal periodic payments made at the end of each payment period is called
an
ordinary annuity.
Examples of annuities:
1.
Regular deposits into a savings account.
2.
Monthly home mortgage payments.
3.
Payments into a retirement account.
We will study annuities that are subject to the following conditions:
1.
The terms are given by fixed time intervals.
2.
The periodic payments are equal in size.
3.
The payments are made at the end of the payment periods.
4.
The payment periods coincide with the interest conversion periods.
The sum of all payment made and interest earned on an account is called the
future value
of an annuity.
