## 14 April 2019 Compound interest calculations

Saving Tony Bedford's python snippets for calculating compound interest. Really just an excuse to fire up Emacs and play with org babel.

```t = 20 # years
r = 0.07 # rate
pv = 200000.00 # present value
fv = pv * (1+r)**t # future value
print("Pension of %.2f at %d%% will be worth %.2f in %d years" % (pv, 100 * r, fv, t))
```
```Pension of 200000.00 at 7% will be worth 773936.89 in 20 years
```
```t = 20 # years
r = 0.07 # rate
pv = 200000.00 # present value
n = 1
fv = pv * (1 + r/n)**(n*t) # future value
print ("First formula calculates final value to: %.2f" % fv)

fv = pv * (1 + r/n)**(n*1) # year 1 only
print("Year %d: %.2f" % (1, fv))
for i in range (2, t+1):
fv = fv * (1 + r/n)**(n*1) # Calculate one year at a time
print("Year %d: %.2f" % (i, fv))
```
