A retiree is paid $1700 per month by an annuity. If the income is invested in an account that earns 9% interest compounded continuously, what is the future value of the income after ten years? (Round your answer to two decimal places.)

How long will the annuity last for?

Since the maximum compounding is continuous compounding, therefore 9% compounded continuously is equal to:e^0.09 =1.0941742837 - 1 =0.0941742837 - which is the effective annual rate.
But, in order to convert it to a monthly compound, we must take the 12th root of: 1.0941742837^(1/12) =1.0075281954 - 1 x 1200 =9.0338345334% compounded monthly =9.41742837 which is 9% compounded continuously.
FV = PMT x {[[1 + 0.090338345334/12]^(10*12) - 1] / (0.090338345334/12)}
FV =$1,700 x{[[ 1.0075281954 ]^120 - 1] / (0.0075281954)}
FV =$1,700 x                   193.88485999672
FV =$329,604.26 - FV of the income after 10 years.

 

Note: You could also use:0.09/12 =0.0075 =e^0.0075 =1.0075281954 - which is the same as above.
