4 An insurance company is offering a new policy to its customers. Typically, the policy is bought by a parent or grandparent for a child at the child’s birth. The details of the policy are as follows: The purchaser (say, the parent) makes the following six payments to the insurance company:
First birthday: $ 850
Second birthday: $850
Third birthday: $ 950
Fourth birthday: $ 850
Fifth birthday: $ 1,050
