Single Payment Compound Amount
(future value, compound interest) 



Single Payment Present Worth (present value) The present value (P) of a future amount (F) based on (n) compounding periods at interest rate (i) per period. For continuous compounding; r = nominal annual interest rate, and n = years 



Uniform Series Sinking Fund (payments) The uniform series payment/investment (A) required to be made every period for (n) periods, at interest rate (i) per period to produce a future amount (F). For continuous compounding; r = nominal annual interest rate, and n = years 

Uniform Series Compound Amount (Annuity) The future amount (F) for making a uniform series payment/investment (A) every period for (n) periods, at interest rate (i) per period. For continuous compounding; r = nominal annual interest rate, and n = years 

Capital Recovery (Amortization) The series of uniform payment, income, or amount (A) required for n periods at interest rate (i) per period to pay off a debt or to recover an initial capital investment (P). For continuous compounding; r = nominal annual interest rate, and n = years 

Uniform Series Present Worth (Annuity) The present value (P) of a series of uniform payments (A) to be made for (n) periods at interest rate (i) per period. For continuous compounding; r = nominal annual interest rate, and n = years 

Uniform Gradient Present Worth The present value (P) of a series of uniform gradient payments (G) to be made for (n) periods at interest rate (i) per period. 

Uniform Gradient Future Worth The future value (F) of a series of gradient payments (G) to be made for (n) periods at interest rate (i) per period. 

Uniform Gradient Uniform Series The uniform payment (A) of a series of gradient payments (G) to be made for (n) periods at interest rate (i) per period.
