Withdrawing From a Retirement Account



Jason deposited $300,000 into a savings account which pays 5% interest compounded annually. He plans to withdraw money from the account once per year until it is all gone.

Calculate the number of years the money will last assuming inflation increases at a constant 2% per year.
