GRADIENT SERIES FACTOR FORMULA & NOTATION Arithmetic Gradient Uniform Series Factor (A/G) A = G * (A/G,i%,n) A = G * [(1/i) (n/((1+i) n 1))] Arithmetic Gradient Present Worth Factor (P/G) P = G * (P/G,i%,n) P = G * [((1+i) n (i*n) 1)/(i 2 * (1+i) n )] Arithmetic Gradient Future Worth Factor (F/G) F = G * (F/G,i%,n) F = G * [(1/i) * ((((1+i) n -1)/i)-n)] 17 IE 492 Engineering Economics

    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.
