Here is the Calculation to follow to Find the Future Value of a Investment

The present value of \$87,500 with receipt of the funds being taken 3 years (t) from today. The desired interest rate of return (r) for these funds is 9%.

To calculate this we will follow this order of operations.

Present Value (PV) = Future Value (FV)

PV = FV (1+interest rate or return)-n

## Use Math Order of Operations

PV 87,500 / (1+ .09)3rd power

PV 87,500 / (1.09)3rd power

PV 87,500 / 1.295029

Equals = \$67,566.55 Future Value
