Explanation:Giving the following information:

You want to have $1.5 million in real dollars in a retirement account when you retire in 40 years.

Inflation rate= 2.7%

Interest rate= 10%

First, we need to deduct from the interest rate the inflation rate.Real interest rate= 0.10 – 0.027= 0.073

Now, using the following formula, we can determine the annual deposit:FV= {A*[(1+i)^n-1]}/iA= annual depositIsolating A:

A= (FV*i)/{[(1+i)^n]-1}A= (1,500,000*0.073) / [(1.073^40)-1]

A= $6,952.82
