Finance Help....
Looking for a little help...I got the answeres in Excel but I need to setup it the way the teacher wants to see it. The question is below.
Teacher wants it setup the way below and wants us to use a Finace calculator...
N I/Y PV PMT FV
? ? ? ? ?
I did it this way...
How much will $1,500 grow to in 9 years earning an annual rate 9% yet using monthly compounding? What about 22 years?
A= P(1+ r/q)qt ...where "A" is the future amount, "P" is the beginning amount (or "principal"), "r" is the interest rate (expressed as a decimal), "q" is the number of compoundings a year, and "t" is the total number of yearsAns.A= 1500(1+.09/12)12*9=1500*2.241124$3,361.69in 9 yearsA= 1500(1+.09/12)12*22=1500*7.18943$10,784.15in 22 years

9 Years:
N = 108 (9yrs*12mos)
I/Y = .0075 (.09APR/12mos)
PV = $1,500
Find for FV
22 years
N = 264 (22yrs*12mos)
I/Y = .0075 (.09APR/12mos)
PV = $1,500
Find for FV

You'll need to set your calculator's "C/Y" to 12 (compound monthly).
PV = 1,500
N = 9 (then 22 for the second part)
I/Y = 9
Compute the FV
(fyi ... one of the values might need to be set to a negative, or the FV may be calculated as a negative ... whichever you choose)
I don't have my calcluator with me ...

Reason: Or as CRAZYGREG did it.

Re: Finance Help....
This looks pretty similar to my HW. What class is this for?

Thank you!

Re: Finance Help....
My solution is for C/Y set to 1. You can put the PV in as a () if you wish since it is coming out of your p[ocket up front.
