Future Value (FV) Calculator

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

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

How to use the Future Value (FV) 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:

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.
