Monthly withdraw= $204.55 Step-by-step explanation: First, we need to calculate the value of the account at the moment of retirement using the following formula: FV= {A*[(1+i)^n-1]}/i A= monthly deposit Stock: Monthly deposit=$600

Interest rate= 0.07/12= 0.00583

Number of periods (n)= 20*12= 240 months

FV= {600*[(1.00583^240) – 1]} / 0.00583

FV= $312,404.24 Bond: Monthly deposit=$400

Interest rate= 0.04/12= 0.0033

Number of periods (n)= 20*12= 240 months

FV= {400*[(1.0033^240) – 1]} / 0.0033

FV= $146,052.20 Total value at retirement=$458,456.44

Now, we can determine the monthly withdrawals after retirement:

Monthly withdraw= (FV*i) / [1 – (1+i)^(-n)]

FV= 458,456.44

n= 30*12= 360

i= 0.1/12= 0.0083

Monthly withdraw= (458,456.44*0.0083) / [(1.0083^360) – 1]

Monthly withdraw= \$204.55
