A businessman started a retirement plan at the age of 30. He contributed to it annually in equal amounts with an APR of 5% for 25 years. Due to some personal issues, he was unable to contibute to his plan for 5 years. Then he resumed the same payments as before for another 5 years until age 65. He intent is to withdraw an annual pension of $75,000 for life. Assume the same rate of 5% APR, how much should he have saved and what were his annual contributions to his retirement fund? Thank you for help.
