Solution:

First, calculate the present value of an annuity for the school fees required:

PV = PMT "\\times " [1 â€“ (1 + r)-n "\\div " r]

PV = 50,000 "\\times " [1 â€“ (1+0.07)-4"\\div " 0.07] = 50,000 "\\times " 3.3872 = 169,360

PV = 169,360

Â

Now calculate the periodic payments of FV:

P = FV"\\div " [(1+r)n â€“ 1"\\div " r] = 169,360"\\div " (1+0.07)8 â€“ 1"\\div " 0.07] = 169,360"\\div " 10.2598 = 16,507

The amount Anderson would have to save each year for 8 years is closest to Rs. 16,500
