# Annuity

Use the following information in answering Cases 1 and 2 below.

On January 1, 2001, Carr Company sold \$600,000 of 10% bonds, due January 1, 2011. Interest on these bonds is paid on July 1 and January 1 each year. According to the terms of the bond contract, Carr must establish a sinking fund for the retirement of the bond principal starting no later than January 1, 2009. Since Carr was in a tight cash position during the years 2001 through 2006, the first contribution into the fund was made on January 1, 2007.

Case 1: Assume that, starting with the January 1, 2007 contribution, Carr desires to make a total of four equal annual contributions into this fund. Compute the amount of each of these contributions assuming the interest rate is 8% compounded annually.

Case 2: On January 2, 2007, Milton Company loaned \$80,000 to Renn Company. The terms of this loan agreement stipulate that Renn is to make 5 equal annual payments to Milton at 10% interest compounded annually. Assume the payments are to begin on December 31, 2007. Compute the amount of each of these payments.
