How can we calculate the amount to be deposit into an account to collect $240,000 at the end of 3 years if the account is paying 8% per annum compounded every month?

Thanks

IB Mathematical Studies, Financial Mathematics, Compound Interest, Present value

The general compounding formula is:

Where F is the future value of the investment (=$40,000), P the principal, r is the interest rate per compound period () and n is the number of compounding periods (=3*12=36 months).

Therefore

The guidelines for doing this exercise directly to GDC Casio FX-9860 is

TVM -> F2: Compound Interest -> n=36, I%=8, FV=240,000, P/Y=12, C/Y=12 and then press PV and get your result with a negative sign is PV.

Hope these help
