She saved $2000 at the end of each month. If each person earns 7% compounded monthly, what are the balances in each person’s account at age 60 (at the end of the year)?

She saved $15,000 per year (at the end of the year). When she turned 40 she stopped contributing. Joe delayed saving until he was age 40.
