Use future or present value techniques to solve the following problems.
a. Starting with $15,000, how much will you have in 10 years if you can earn 6 percent on your money? If you can earn only 4 percent?
b. If you inherited $45,000 today and invested all of it in a security that paid a 7 percent rate of return, how much would you have in 25 years?

d. You think that in 15 years, it will cost $212,000 to provide your child with a 4-year college education. Will you have enough if you take $70,000 today and invest it for the next 15 years at 5 percent? If you start from scratch, how much will you have to save each year to have $212,000 in 15 years if you can earn a 4 percent rate of return on your investments?
