when you are 52 (30 years), or (2) wait until you are 37 to start saving and then
save $6,000 per year for the next 15 years. Assume you will earn the historic stock

1. How much “out-of-pocket” cash will you invest under the two options?

2. How much savings will you have accumulated at age 52 under the two options?

pocket investments), what would the investments be worth when you are age 62?
