    2 girls graduate high school and go off to conquer the world.

    The first graduate decides to put $2,000 away for retirement from age 19 to 26 (8 years). Then stops after hearing, for years, from her friends, that she should not worry about retirement at this young age. Spend and enjoy life they say.

    One of her friends has a baby, at age 27, and decides maybe retirement planning is now necessary. She starts putting away $2,000 per year for the rest of her life.

    Assuming 10% investment return, how long does it take the second graduate to catch up to the first graduate? How much is in the account at this point?
