ngivenPFi: To Find i Given F, n, and P (Engineering Economics)

Description Usage Arguments Details Value References Examples

Description

Compute n given P, F, and i

Usage

1
ngivenPFi(P, F, i)

Arguments

P

numeric vector that contains the present value(s)

F

numeric vector that contains the future value(s)

i

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

Details

n is expressed as

n = \frac{\log ≤ft(\frac{F}{P}\right)}{\log ≤ft(1 + i\right)}

n

the "number of interest periods"

F

the "future equivalent"

P

the "present equivalent"

i

the "effective interest rate per interest period"

Value

n numeric vector that contains the period value(s)
