# Future Value Calculator

Please enter your values in the Future Value Calculator. Example is included below.

Present Value (PV): Interest Rate in % (r): Number of periods (n):

## How to use the Future Value Calculator

Let’s review a simple example to see how to use the Future Value Calculator.

Suppose that you have the following data and your goal is to derive the Future Value:

• Present Value (PV) = 3000
• Interest Rate in % (r) = 5
• Number of periods (n) = 9

Enter the above data into the calculator and then click on the Calculate Future Value (FV) button:

Once your press on the button, you’ll get the Future Value of 4653.9846:

## How to Manually Derive the Future Value

You can also manually calculate the Future Value using the equation below:

```Future Value (FV)  =  PV * (1 + r)n
```

Where:

• PV = Present Value
• r = Interest Rate
• n = Number of Periods

For example, let’s say that you have the following data and you’d like to calculate the Future Value:

• PV = 3000
• r = 5% (or 0.05)
• n = 9

Inputting the data in the equation:

```Future Value (FV)  =  PV * (1 + r)n = 3000 * (1 + 0.05)9 = 4653.9846
```

You’ll then get the Future Value of 4653.9846.
