Future Value Calculator

Hi All,

I was wondering if someone could show me an example of a future value calculator:

" F = P(1+rate)^t "

where

F = future value

P = initial deposit (principal)

rate = (annual) interest rate (expressed as a fraction, e.g. 0.06)

t = number of years invested

Also,

The user needs to be able too input each parameter:

"Please input the principal: ______"

"Please input the annual interest rate: ______"

"Please input the number of years invested: ______"

Then,

The program should run the calculator and output the information:

"The future value of your investment after ___ years is : ______"

Thanks,

Evan

if you are a beginner, have a crack at it yourself - you'll learn more that

way (the downside is you may end up with a few self-inflicted wounds!)

if you get stuck, post a specific question and include the code you've tried.

Hey,

I was going to... I just wanted to compare my results to someone elses.

Here is my code I came up with:

How does it look?

It looks good.

It will give me the powers of the gods. Not bad for a tiny ad:
