Have a go at this cracker of a question… In 3 years an investor deposits the first of 8 $1000 payments into a special fund. The fund will earn interest at the rate of 5% per year until the end of the fifth year. Thereafter, all money accumulated in the fund will earn a reduced interest rate of 4% compounded annually until the end of the tenth year. How much money will th investor have in the fund at the end of 10yrs assuming no withdrawals are made? a 8,416 b 8,872 c 9,251 d 9,549

has been solved many times before on the forum answer 9251
