P

numeric vector that contains the present value(s)

n

numeric vector that contains the period value(s)

i

numeric vector that contains the interest rate(s) as a percent

frequency

Compound Interest is expressed as

S_n = P≤ft(1 + i\right)^n

P

the "principal amount (lent or borrowed)"

S_n

the "interest rate per interest period"

n

the "number of interest periods"
