Summary of math and excel equations Math
Equations FV
= PV *(1+r)^n PV
= FV / ((1+r)^n) N
= ln(FV/PV) / ln(1+r) Rate
= (FV/PV)^{1/n} 1 Annuity:
N = ln(FV/C*r+1)/(ln(1+r)) Or
N = ln(1/(1(PV/C)*r)))/ (ln(1+r)) EAR
= (1+APR/m)^m1 APR
= (1+EAR)^(1/m)*m Excel
Formulas To get FV, use FV function. =abs(fv(rate, nper,
pmt, pv)) To get PV, use PV
function = abs(pv(rate, nper,
pmt, fv)) To get r, use rate
function =
rate(nper, pmt, pv, fv) To get number of years,
use nper function = nper(rate, pmt, pv,
fv) To
get annuity payment, use PMT function = pmt(rate, nper, pv,
fv) To
get Effective rate (EAR), use Effect function =
effect(nominal_rate, npery) To
get annual percentage rate (APR), use nominal function =
nominal(effective rate, npery) NPV NFV calculator(FYI, might be helpful) Time Value of Money
