Compound Interest
If you want to find t, the number of years, enter values for F, P and r.  Don't forget to change c, compounds per year.

Formula from book where 
i
= r and n = t c

Example:
You want to invest $20,000 for 30 years  at 11 % interest compounded quarterly.  How much money will you have at the end of the 30 years?  (before taxes)
We need to find i  and  n ...  
  • i = .11/4 = 0.0275  quarterly means 4 times a year (Hint: don't round until you are completely finished with your calculations) 
  • P = present Value = 20,000 
  • n = number of interest period = 30 4 = 120
We want to find F = Future value
F = (1 + i)n P = (1 + 0.0275)120 20,000 =
 25.93102392 20,000 = 518,620.48
Try the calculator below.  Use P = present value = 20000
r = rate = .11, t =years = 30, c = compound periods = 4
Leave the blank.

   =  

future value
P =   = present value
r =   = interest rate per year
t =   = number  of years  
c =   = compounds per year 
monthly = 12, quarterly = 4 
ANSWER: 

You must enter values in 3 out of the 4 textboxes.

If you get NaN in the answer box , check your input values.  F should be more than P .  Interest rate should be between 0 and 1.  Years can be partial years i.e. 1 and a half years = 1.5

Annuities or Amortization
The present value P and the rent  R of a decreasing annuity of payments (rent) compounded at a rate i  per interest period.
Also called amortization when the payments are equal and at a regular time interval. (car loans and home mortgages )
 

James buys a house for $90,000.  He puts $10,000 down and then finances the rest at 9% interest compounded monthly for 25 years.

Find his monthly payments
This is a Present Value of an Annuity problem. We need to find the Rent R

Formula from book where 
i
= r and n = t c

Note: n = 12(25) = 300 , i = .09/12 = .0075 and P = 90,000 - 10,000 = 80,000

The monthly payments are $671.36

Find the total amounts he pays for the house.

You pay $10,000 down and $671.36 a month for 25 years
10,000 + 671.36 12 25 = 10,000 + 201,408 = 211,408
You pay $211,408 for the house with interest.

Try the calculator below.  Use P = present value = 80000
r = rate = .09, t =years = 25, c = compound periods = 12
Leave the blank.

  • N = 12 30 = 360   Number of payments
  • I % = 8  means 8 % no decimal for TVM needed
  • PV = 150000 is Present Value 
  • PMT payment or rent is unknown
  • FV = 0 Future Value is zero when loan is paid off
  • P/Y and C/Y = 12 payments and compound periods per year
  • PMT: END most loans compound the interest at the end of the month,

Your payment (or rent) would be $1,100.64.  12 months 30 years = 360 payments
You pay 360 1,100.64 = $396,230.40 for the house. 

Use your calculator or the Annuity Calculator above to find the monthly payment at 7%. 
The monthly payment is $997.95.   You pay 360 997.95 = $359,262.00 for the house.  That is about a $37,000 dollar savings.

Note:  You can use these calculators if you know 3 pieces of information. If you know you want to pay $300 dollars a month for five years for a car loan and you can get 2.9% interest, what price range of a vehicle can you afford?  Use your  the Annuity Calculator above to find the Present Value P = $16,737.07.  Use R = 300, i = 0.029, t = 5, and c = 12.
