Understanding the future value of an investment is crucial for financial planning and decision-making. The BA II Plus calculator simplifies this calculation, allowing users to predict the worth of their investments over time.

Formula: The future value (FV) is calculated using the formula: FV = P(1 + r/n)^(nt), where P is the principal amount, r is the annual interest rate, n is the number of times interest is compounded per year, and t is the number of years.

How to Use:

- Enter the investment amount in the “Investment Amount” field.
- Input the annual interest rate in the “Interest Rate” field.
- Specify the number of years in the “Number of Years” field.
- Click the “Calculate” button to get the future value.

Example: Suppose you invest $10,000 with an annual interest rate of 5% compounded annually for 3 years. Enter the values, click “Calculate,” and the result will show the future value of your investment.
