(a) The periodic deposit is $\$919$(b) The total amount of money deposited into the annuity is$\$18,380$ The interest is $\$1620$#### Work Step by Step (a) This is the formula we use to calculate the value of an annuity:$A = \frac{P~[(1+\frac{r}{n})^{nt}-1]}{\frac{r}{n}}A$is the future value of the annuity$P$is the amount of the periodic deposit$r$is the interest rate$n$is the number of times per year the interest is compounded$t$is the number of years$A = \frac{P~[(1+\frac{r}{n})^{nt}~-1]}{\frac{r}{n}}P = \frac{A~(\frac{r}{n})}{~(1+\frac{r}{n})^{nt}~-1}P = \frac{(\$20,000)~(\frac{0.035}{4})}{~(1+\frac{0.035}{4})^{(4)(5)}~-1}$ $P = \$919$The periodic deposit is$\$919$ (b) The total amount of money deposited into the annuity is $\$919 \times 20$, which is$\$18,380$ The interest is the difference between the value of the annuity and the total amount deposited. We can calculate the interest. $interest = \$20,000 - \$18,380 = \$1620$The interest is$\$1620$
