The easiest way to find a future value of a complex cash flow on your calculator is to find the present value, then compound forward. In addition, make sure that you know how to use the Nj key when using the cash flow (CFj) registers on your calculator. There are only 14 CFj registers and the Nj key can be used to input like values without using multiple registers. An example: suppose you have cash flows of \$100 in Years 1-3, \$200 in Years 9- 12, and an interest rate of 10 percent.

Unformatted text preview: To find the value at Year 15 you would input CFj 0 (place holder; must have single cash flow to start) CFj \$100 (Year 1) Nj 3 (Year 1 through Year 3) CFj 0 (place holder: Year 4) Nj 5 (Year 4 through Year 8) CFj \$200 (Year 9) Nj 4 (Year 9 through Year 12) I/YR 10 Solve for NPV = \$544.44 Once you convert the complex cash flows into a present value, you can then compound forward to any future year. N = 15; I/YR = 10; PV = -544.44; Solve for FV = \$2,274.26...

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
