Periodic compound interestIn periodic interest if I know everything except number of compoundings per year,how do I find it? #2 20130205 19:25:09

Re: Periodic compound interestSorry,but i couldn't find any formula for n there.There is the formula Fv=Pv(1+r/n)^(nt) but i don't know how to solve that expression for n. #4 20130205 22:32:33
Re: Periodic compound interestHi Banon; In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #5 20130206 00:26:09
Re: Periodic compound interesthi Banon, using http://www.mathsisfun.com/data/function … p;ymax=1.2 I've chosen r = 0.05 and you have to have x instead of n. You can put y = FV/PV as the second graph and zoom in on the point where the line cuts the curve.
