Word Problems/Investment Account Value

Question
Hello:

An investor invests \$33,000 at 5% compounded annually for 10 years. He also deposits \$2,165 every year in the account for ten years.  How much will he have at the end of 10 years?

The answer is found by taking \$33,000 * 1.05^10  +  2,165(1.05^10 - 1)/0.05.
At the end of 10 years this is \$53,753.52 + \$27,231.14.
The answer to that is \$80,984.66.

To get this, I used the formula for a future value F given an annuity A, n periods,
and i interest.  It is F = A*((1+i)^n - 1)/i).
