Sample Usage

RATE(12,-100,400,0,0,0.1)

RATE(A2,B2,C2,D2,1,0.08)

RATE(number_of_periods, payment_per_period, present_value, [future_value, end_or_beginning, rate_guess])

  • number_of_periods - The number of payments to be made.

  • payment_per_period - The amount per period to be paid.

  • present_value - The current value of the annuity.

  • future_value - [ OPTIONAL ] - The future value remaining after the final payment has been made.
