#### Solution Preview

Please refer attached file for clarity of formulas in MS Excel format.

a. If she invest it at 8% compounded annually and takes nothing out, how much will she have at the end of 20 years?

Inherited amount=T=\$750,000
Used amount=U=0
Balance=PV=T-U=\$750,000
Annual withdrawl=PMT=0
Rate of interest=RATE=8%
Number of periods=NPER=20
Type of payment=TYPE=0 End of period with drawls
Future Value=FV=?

We can use FV function in MS Excel to get the value at the end of 20 years

Future Value=FV=\$3,495,717.86 =FV(D9,D10,-D8,-D7,D11)

b. If she take out \$50,000 to but  a car and  invest the remainder at 8% compounded annually and takes nothing else out, how much will she have at the end of 20 ...
