When you graduate college at the age of 20, you want to start saving up for retirement. If your investment pays a fixed APR of 8.5% and you want to have $500,000 when you retire in 45 years, how much would you need to deposit, at the beginning of each month, to reach this goal?

to find your deposited money you will use the compound interest formula A = P*(1+r/m)^tm where your A = 500,000 P = we will be funding the value and that's your answer as well. r = 8.5% = 0.085, t = 45-20 = 25 and m = as its monthly it will be 12, then plug in the formula 500000 = P*(1+0.085/12)^25*12, 500000 = P*(1+0.0071)^300, 500000 = P*(1.0071)^300, 500000 = P*(8.352), P = 500000/8.352, P = 59866 Answer is $59,866
