yes, that is an annuity. The formula for the present value of an annuity is
$\displaystyle \displaystyle S \times a_{\bar{n|}} = S \times \frac{1-v^n}{i}$
S= payment amount
i = annual interest rate
v = 1/(1+i)
n=number of payments
It is difficult to believe that you would have been asked to do this question without being told the formula to do it. Review your course notes or read this
