in the problem just demonstrated, the $800 present value (PV), because it was keyed as a positive number (800), is

sign to show that it is the resulting outflow or withdrawal. Had the $800 present value been keyed in as a negative
number ( 800), the future value of $1,070.58 would have been displayed as a positive number (1,070.58). Simply
stated, the ca...
