Answer to Question #12142 in Other Management for john
Until now, the grandfather has been disappointed with Ed, hence has not given him anything. However, they recently reconciled, and the grandfather decided to make an equivalent provision for Ed. He will make the first payment to a trust for Ed today, and he has instructed his trustee to make 40 additional equal annual payments until Ed turns 65, when the 41st and final payment will be made. If both trusts earn an annual return of 8%, how much must the grandfather put into Ed's trust today and each subsequent year to enable him to have the same retirement nest egg as Steve after the last payment is made on their 65th birthday?
So, Ed should have also 1129750.
x*1.08 + x*1.08^2 + ... + x*1.08^41 = 1129750
x = 3725.55, so the correct answer is a. $3,726
