Tomorrow, on your 25th birthday, you will receive the proceeds of a trust fund that was set up by your wealthy

grandmother. She invested $10,000 at 5 percent on your 5th birthday. You plan to invest your inheritance with an insurance company at a guaranteed rate of 8 1/2 percent. When you retire at the age of 65, you will begin to draw your investment in 20 equal installments calculated to reduce your fund to $0. You will make each withdrawal at the end of the year, and that the money that remains invested will continue to earn 8 1/2 percent.
