## Formulas and Calculations:

## Annual Distribution Per Beneficiary:

The formula to calculate the annual distribution per beneficiary is:

[ \text{Annual Distribution Per Beneficiary} = \frac{\text{Total Trust Assets} \times \left(1 + \frac{\text{Annual Return Rate}}{100}\right) – \text{Annual Expenses}}{\text{Number of Beneficiaries}} ]

## Total Distribution Per Beneficiary:

The formula to calculate the total distribution per beneficiary over the specified number of years is:

[ \text{Total Distribution Per Beneficiary} = \text{Annual Distribution Per Beneficiary} \times \text{Years of Trust Distribution} ]

## Example Calculation:

**Inputs**:

- Total Trust Assets: $1,000,000
- Number of Beneficiaries: 5
- Annual Return Rate: 5%
- Annual Expenses: $10,000
- Years of Trust Distribution: 10

## Step-by-Step Calculation:

**Annual Distribution Per Beneficiary**:

- Using the formula:

[\text{Annual Distribution Per Beneficiary} = \frac{1,000,000 \times \left(1 + \frac{5}{100}\right) – 10,000}{5} = \frac{1,000,000 \times 1.05 – 10,000}{5} = \frac{1,050,000 – 10,000}{5} = \frac{1,040,000}{5} = 208,000 \, \text{dollars}]

**Total Distribution Per Beneficiary**:

- Using the formula:

[\text{Total Distribution Per Beneficiary} = 208,000 \times 10 = 2,080,000 \, \text{dollars}]

## Summary:

For a family trust with total assets of $1,000,000, 5 beneficiaries, an annual return rate of 5%, annual expenses of $10,000, and a distribution period of 10 years, each beneficiary will receive an annual distribution of $208,000, resulting in a total distribution of $2,080,000 over the 10-year period.
