If the payments are not specifically stated to be made at the beginning of the period, then it is automatically assumed that they are made at the end of the period.

This is the formula used to calculate that:

FV=P{[1 + R]^N - 1/ R}

FV =150 x {[1 + 0.08/12]^15 - 1} / (0.08/12)

FV =150 x {[ 1.0066667]^15 -1} / (0.0066667)

FV =150 x { 0.10480422 / 0.0066667}

FV =150 x 15.7205541......

**FV =$2,358.09 - Balance of the savings plan.**
