Instructions: Note: Input data in the green cells only. Hit [Clear] after each problem to clear the information. If the answer is #DIV/0, there is likely not enough information to answer the problem. Use the Inputs Needed Table (in yellow) to make sure you have sufficient information to solve the problem. In using this calculator, assume that money you pay out to invest is negative, i.e. you pay it out. Then, when you receive money the sign should be positive, i.e. you receive the money. For example, you have invested \$3,000 each year for 15 years at 8% interest. Since you pay the \$3,000 out each year the sign should be negative. When you solve for your Future Value [Calculate FV] the answer will come back a positive number, i.e. PMT = -3,000, N = 15, P/Y = 1, I = 8%, then solve for Future Value [Calculate FV] = \$81,456. This is the amount of money you will have at the end of 15 years assuming your investments returned 8% each year.
