Find the future value =fv(rate,nper,pmt,[pv],type)

Find the present value =pv(rate,nper,pmt,[fv],type)

Payment =pmt(rate,nper,pv,[fv],type)

Number of periods =nper(rate,pmt,pv,[fv],type)

Yield (Interest rate) =rate(nper,pmt,pv,[fv],type)

There are five arguments in each function. Rate is the interest rate per period. For example, if the interest rate per period is 5%, you will type .05 for this argument. Nper is the total number of periods. Pv is the present value, and fv is the future value. Pmt is the dollar amount of the periodic payment. The "type" argument tells Excel whether the cash flows occur at the end (0) or beginning (1) of the period. The bracket ,"[ ]", means that you will input a negative value in order to return a positive value for the answer.
